Workers in the field face safety risks every day, especially when working alone. Equip your workers with reliable location-based communication tools and assure an immediate response in an emergency. UTRACK Man Down is part of UTRACK’S range of personal safety solutions and devices, supports welfare monitoring and is a critical part of field worker safety, especially in volatile, high-risk and remote environments.

Integrated with industry-leading mapping and reporting software, our Man Down Solution offers seamless communication, location identification and alert management. Alerts can be triggered by inactivity or a missed timed check-in, giving workers peace of mind, knowing that if they aren’t able to manually trigger an alert help is still on its way.

Man Down Device (1)


  • Pinpoints the location of your employees, facilitating a fast response in an emergency
  • Covers multiple risk scenarios with intelligent cause and- effect features
  • Alerts monitoring staff upon PANIC and timed check-in alerts
  • Adds assurance and support to the person in distress via the two-way voice communication functionality

How it works

  • Employees are able to start a timed session before they begin a period of lone work or travel. This triggers a countdown and activates a satellite GPS tracker, visible in the Hub. If an employee fails to end their session safely, a session expiry alert will be sent to the monitor.
  • Panic button allows an employee to send an immediate panic alert if they are in trouble and need assistance.
  • If an employee is being forced by an attacker to terminate the app, a ‘false pin’ can be entered to appear as if the session has been cancelled when, in fact, a panic alarm has been triggered.
  • Low battery warnings allow you to remind an employee to charge their device if it is running low.
  • Employees can set fixed check-in periods within a session. Failure to do so by the end of the timed period will raise a missed check-in.
  • Panic alert can also be triggered discreetly using the device’s power button, allowing an alert to be raised discreetly from the user’s pocket or handbag.
  • If an employee has not moved for a prolonged period of time and not checked in, a non-movement alert is triggered in case there has been an accident.
