GEOTrac-Out of Truck Notification is a timer-based lifeline service that enables remote workers to safely leave their
vehicle while working on site. Connected to GEOTrac, a mobile data terminal can be quickly programmed by the driver to
monitor the time a driver expects to be away.
Once the countdown has been activated in the vehicle, a back-up timer is also activated at a remote GEOTrac server offsite. If
an incident occurs on site, the remote server will continue to count down.
As the timer is about to expire, an extremely loud siren which is connected to the GEOTrac modem, notifies the worker that
their working session is about to expire unless the timer is reset. If the worker does not return in time, the siren will alert the
worker it has sent a distress message through the wireless network to the safety manager.
The distress message can also be forwarded to additional resources as back-up such as an area manager, 24 hr. call center or direct
to emergency response services.
The Out of Truck Notification lifeline service is a two-way service. If a safety manager needs to reach a remote worker outside of
cellular range, the safety manager can activate the vehicle’s siren notifying the driver to return to the vehicle for a message.
