Aboca places a high priority on the promotion of health and wellbeing throughout all facets of their business, including among their own people. However, their unique, rural locations within which they engage in farming activities, made keeping their workers safe a significant challenge.
Aboca’s cultivation team is spread across vast farmlands, and many workers are often out of sight and sound for long periods during the day. With most areas having a very weak or patchy cellular signal, traditional forms of communication - such as manual check-ins by mobile phones – was unreliable.
To address this safety risk, the company’s senior management was looking for a lone worker personal monitoring solution that they could rely on to provide a constant way to reach workers in the fields, which is critical should an accident, health or other emergency event occur.
