Is your lone worker solution getting used?
When you provide your workers with PPE you expect them to use it, don't you?
Picture this, you’re a construction site manager and you’ve provided your employees with the correct PPE. You wouldn’t let a single member of your team go on-site without a hard hat or the correct footwear, would you? If you spend good money on protective equipment for your employees and want them to be as free from risk as possible then you’d expect them to use it.
Now apply this logic to your lone working PPE. So you’ve chosen a lone worker solution, your staff have been given a lone worker device, you’ve ticked the box… but are they using it? Are you certain that they are as free from risk as possible?
Ensuring your staff utilize their lone worker solution can often be a difficult task, how can you really know if they’re using their device correctly, or indeed at all? If you’re not aware then are you truly protecting them?
Every SoloProtect Solution customer gets a comprehensive weekly or monthly report; this outlines the utilization of devices or phone applications across your team. It can also be used to easily highlight areas of best practice, pockets of low usage and where additional training support might be beneficial. SoloProtect makes it their goal to help you achieve a very high level of usage.
Why invest in a solution if you’re not willing to monitor it?
The consequences of doing the bare minimum to safeguard your lone workers’ wellbeing can be fatal. Adopting a solution based on financial reasons, as opposed to workers’ needs or company requirements will result in an ineffective and unutilised solution.
You’re demonstrating your duty of care but not doing enough to show you really care about your responsibility. You’ve shown you’re aware of the problem but, perhaps unintentionally, that you’re not willing to resolve it in full.
You’re Not Alone
User adoption is key to employing a successful solution; without the right support and training, it’s hard to get the best from your lone worker device. Along with access to comprehensive monthly reporting, every SoloProtect customer gets UK based customer support and training.
The key to ensuring you get the most out of your lone worker solution is a responsibility shared between you, your provider (us!) and your employees.
