Cleaners are mostly working in isolation, often indoors and outside normal working hours. When a lone worker requires help inside the building, the information about his or her accurate location is not always available.

TWIG personal safety monitoring alarms can determine the accurate location from nearby installed TWIG beacons. When a GPS location signal is not available, our devices provide a precise signal that can be used to locate employees.

The high risk profile of remote workers can be significantly reduced by investing in safety solutions. Personal safety alarms or other safety apps are highly effective way to maintain safety protocol in the workplace. Sustain your duty of care, enjoy peace of mind and never have to call emergency services again. With a personal duress alarm by TWIG Australia, your staff are protected at all times.

Lone-working risks in cleaning industry


The exposure to vapour from cleaning chemicals may cause breathing problems, skin irritation or even unconsciousness. If a cleaning worker hasn’t been heard from for some time, it’s possible he or she has fallen unconscious. With a TWIG system, their safety is assured by the location tracking ability of the devices.

Falls, slips and trips

Slips on spillages, trips on objects left on the floor or falling from height can cause serious injuries. In the event your staff need to alert help, they will be catered to immediately. Equip your team with a personal duress alarm by TWIG Australia to ensure their safety.


Isolated employees are put at greater risk and are more vulnerable to violence when working alone outside normal working hours. Lone assailants can be prevented before serious harm occurs by a signal sent out by a TWIG personal safety device. Emergency services can be notified and the safety of your isolated workers guaranteed.

TWIG advantages for lone-worker safety

ManDown alarm

The automatic ManDown function can trigger alert if an isolated worker is unconscious or unable to alert help.

Amber alert

When entering a risky situation, the Amber alert timer can be adjusted to inform users of safety breaches. A pre alarm after predefined duration of time indicates that the situation may no longer be safe. In these circumstances it’s best practice for the employee to move to another location.

Indoor location

The TWIG Beacon system is designed to locate distressed or injured persons inside areas where GPS is not reliable. When other methods do not provide needed accuracy, we provide a custom solution. A high degree of precision is provided within indoor environments.
