PG backups

Hi Omnis list

With recent talk on Postgres security can I ask how people are managing Postgres backups from their Omnis apps?

Currently we have a block of code that runs pgdump via an AppleScript call on Mac or by creating and launching a bat file on Windows, this can lock the system for a long time on our bigger databases - would love to be able to move this into an Omnis Worker, is it possible to run a postgres backup with a SQLWorker or Node.js Worker?

Best regards
