Lone Worker Safety Every second counts

While working alone is perfectly acceptable and legal it is still the employer’s responsibility to ensure the safety of lone workers, and they also need to consider all the risks that they may face doing their job.

Employees working alone always face risks be it environmental or socially, it is very common for people to work alone. Whether it’s a telephone engineer carrying our tests or repairs on telephone lines or systems or a retail worker closing a shop at the end of the day, no matter what the job this is a daily occurrence for many employees and even self-employed individuals.

Some examples of Safety risks a lone worker may face are things like slips, trips, and falls or it may even be physical or verbal abuse from a member of the public. These types of risks can often be heightened when working alone, so it is very important for employers to do everything possible to safeguard their workforce.

Lets say an employee suffers an injury on their way to a job how would they reach out to get help? Every second counts when you are in an emergency situation. If you fall and you injure yourself causing Severe bleeding you need to be able to get help as quickly as possible.

For situations like this, there is an app available for your phone (or your business/work mobile phone) called Protector by the company Vatix. They also offer Safety devices which can alert someone in your organisation that you are in a dangerous or uncomfortable situation for more information you can visit their website
