Do you have a lone worker protection plan in place?
The workforce is a company's most valuable asset, and employee protection is a main priority for executives. Consider the statistics of workplace safety in the US and keep your employees safe
Employee safety is of top importance when it comes to job satisfaction, retention, and the mitigation of business risk. Companies are now taking the step to not only educate their workforce on matters of workplace safety, but also forming committees to find out what other solutions may exist to truly keep their staff safe every day. What protection plan does your company have in place for workforce safety, especially for your lone workers?
Around the globe, companies are adopting the use of an employee monitoring device. The employee who works alone no longer needs to feel alone when out in the field.
Using a personal safety device enables a worker who feels threatened physically, or one suffering a medical issue or an injury on the job to connect with emergency personnel and prompt support is the latest in employee protection. Workers feel safer as they head out to their job-related duties, knowing that needed help is available in just a button-activated moment. And the isolated worker is able to feel that the company acknowledges his value.
