OnGuard Worker Safety

Location Tracking

One of the fundamentals of workplace safety and productivity is having visibility into the location of your workforce. OnGuard’s automatic and manual capabilities empower supervisors with phone location data to monitor both field workers and contractors and automate processes, reducing inefficiency and human error. This is not only relevant for field workers in remote locations but for every single worker and contractor on your site so you are aware of who was present at the time of an incident through location history.

GPS Geolocation

GPS Geolocation is the most commonly used way of locating and tracking the movement of a GPS enabled device. Most vendors use the Google service. OnGuard’s GPS-OG proprietary algorithms ensure the most rapid, accurate and efficient locations available unlike other services which can be inaccurate and heavy on battery consumption.

Indoor & Underground Location

Precise three dimensional positioning is crucial for quick incident response. In multi-floor buildings like hospitals or hotels, with hundreds of rooms, security teams need to know the exact room with the individual who pressed the panic button. Many industrial sites have underground locations where monitoring is crucial to workers safety.


A geofence provides an imaginary line around a specified map zone that can be used to trigger an action if an individual enters a certain zone or to ensure those within a certain zone have specific permissions or requirements.


Even if you can see where an individual in trouble is, it’s not always obvious how to get to them the fastest. What if you could easily direct someone to a location or another person? In times of an emergency this becomes even more important. OnGuard provides you with the capabilities to direct any team member to another individual or location.

Custom Map Overlays

OnGuard can add a custom map overlay that will render your building layout over a map and allow you to pinpoint individuals within a building on any floor or in any room and track their movement. OnGuard also integrates with geographic information system providers to allow OnGuard capabilities within their web-based portals.
