As founder of Guardian Angel Safety, Petra brings over a decade of expertise in safeguarding remote workers through cutting-edge solutions and robust protocols.

Key takeaways from the webinar will include: 

Understanding the Technology: Dive into the functionality and importance of satellite-based solutions like the Iridium network, which operates seamlessly outdoors, and how they compare to cell-based systems that require cellular coverage. 

Selecting the Right Solution: Learn how to navigate the complex market of lone and remote worker solutions, ensuring the choice of hardware and software aligns with the unique needs of your staff and their particular risk, including considerations for working out of cell cover or inside buildings. 

Best Practices for Use and Monitoring: Gain insights on creating an effective emergency response protocol, setting up team logins for shared communication, and understanding the crucial role of a professional graded monitoring station especially during emergencies. 

Cultural Integration and Training: Discover strategies to foster a positive culture around the adoption of these technologies, emphasizing regular training and empowering your staff with the confidence to utilize these tools effectively. 

Attendees can expect to walk away with a thorough comprehension of how to evaluate and implement out-of-cell communication systems, how to harness the full potential of their chosen solutions, and how to create a safety-centric culture within their organizations that will stand firm even in the face of disasters.

Your Speaker:


Petra has spent the last 12 years working with GPS technology in a health and safety capacity. She has been involved in the development and delivery of lone and remote worker solutions to clients ranging from Government Departments to small businesses; on a variety of networks and a range of risk environments. Her business, Guardian Angel Safety has over the last 8 years delivered solutions to over 5000 lone and remote workers in Australia and New Zealand including 30% of all NZ councils, Worksafe NZ and Suncorp Group Australia.

Petra is passionate about ensuring solutions implemented by companies is best fit for purpose and that the supporting processes and end-user training is delivered to a high standard. Solutions are often not stress tested until they are needed and at that stage, it’s all too late with dire consequences. Close enough is not good enough. Her passion for ensuring staff are as safe as they think they are and that companies are not wasting money on solutions that are simply not going to work in their environment has seen her in demand as a presenter to many industry organisations including NZISM, ALGIM, National Safety Show, Safety360 and Forestry Safety Summit. She facilitates workshops on lone worker solutions for EMA NZ and Local Government.
