As an employer, you have a legal duty and requirement to ensure your staff are safe, secure and are sufficiently equipped with the best tools and panic alarm systems in case of safety or health emergencies on the job.
If you have staff who work in isolation or remotely, there is a far greater need for a method to ensure a constant stream of communication, accountability, and the ability for your team to alert law enforcement in an emergency.
Enter the age of Lone Worker Safety Technology…
What is a Lone Worker?
A staff member is considered a ‘lone worker’ when they work in isolation, work remotely, or work by themselves without direct supervision or support from their work management, security, or fellow employees.
According to the Health and Safety Executive in the UK, a lone worker is simply defined as ‘those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision’ https://www.hse.gov.uk/toolbox/workers/lone.htm
This includes staff members who work alone, work remotely, or in isolation. Does this sound familiar in the current crisis of Covid-19? Essentially, you will need your staff to have the ability to press panic alarms, have their location accurately pinpointed as well as the means to be in constant communication. You cannot afford not to provide your lone workers with the best panic alarm and safety app on the market!
As an Employer, What are Your Legal Obligations?
There are many consequences for an employer who does not provide their staff and lone workers with effective security measures, safety, and panic alarms.
There have been instances in the past where companies have had serious fines, legal proceedings, and damages to their reputation due to the lack of safety procedures and security systems in place for their lone workers. Do not take the chance – secure your staff!
We provide state of the art Lone Worker Panic and Safety Alarms. We can accurately locate and monitor your staff at any location with real-time updates as well as the ability for your employees to press a panic alert in a crisis or emergency.
Once we have received a panic alert or a discreet panic alert, we immediately inform law enforcement and emergency services as well as contact your lone worker. Your lone worker can activate the panic alert or discreet panic alert at any time and from any location. The panic signal is received instantly in our Security Operating Centre and action is taken immediately.
If needed, your employee can trigger the silent alarm or discreet panic alarm easily without detection. By simply using connected Bluetooth and easy to access buttons, the alert will be raised immediately and discreetly.
The safety app also offers a time check-in feature that allows your staff to check-in at any time to signal the start and end of work shifts as well as to confirm that they are safe. The length of time in between check-ins can also be customised to suit your needs to ensure the active monitoring of your staff and safety.
