According to the British Crime Survey, approximately 150 lone workers are attacked in daily basis either physically or verbally.
As a best safety practice, a lone worker policy shields the people involved, identifies the processes of several hazards, assigns tasks to specific people and defines a set of actions, to manage emergency events.
A lone worker alarm device is a valuable employee monitoring tool, allowing remotely located personnel to communicate with their base, in case of dangerous or unexpected events. There is a certain risk in frequent relocations, working in remote places and meeting unknown people.
Workers exposed to remote, hazardous environments need a way to effectively communicate with employers. In case of an emergency there may be no time or the opportunity to do so using a conventional way of communication such as calling from a mobile phone.
Employers should encourage their employees to adopt the necessary safety measures when working remotely.
Whether the lone worker is working in a fixed location, moving or engaging with unknown people, a lone worker device minimises the risk of exposure to dangerous situations and allows lone workers to confidently focus on their duties.
