UNB introduces WorkAlone module to UNBSafe app

The University of New Brunswick has introduced the WorkAlone module to its UNBSafe app to improve safety for staff and faculty. Workers who are spending an extended period of time alone on campus can use the the module to check in and ensure their safety. The function lets users set check-in intervals, and if they do not respond to a push notification the app alerts Campus Security so they can check in on the individual. The module seamlessly integrates with other security initiatives, and UNB Campus Security crime prevention community liaison Des Dupuis said that it will be particularly useful for those who work alone in labs.
