Lone Worker Safety Solutions
Lone worker safety solutions are critical for employees who work in a remote location, as well as the lone working employees who work by themselves without close or direct supervision; one who is not visible or within hearing distance of other workers.
What is a lone worker? A lone worker isn’t simply a person who works in a remote location. A lone worker is any employee who works by themselves without close or direct supervision; one who isn’t visible or within hearing distance of supervisors or other workers. The need for a lone worker safety solution is crucial, as a lone worker may
- Work alone in a kiosk, station, shop, or workshop
- Work alone for long periods of time such as in a warehouse, fairground, factory, or leisure center
- Work on his own outside normal business hours, such as in security, repair, delivery, or maintenance
- Work in sales, health care, real estate, postal, social, or engineering industries
Risks to the employee can be social, environmental, or both depending on the type of job he performs, and providing a lone worker safety solution reduces not only risks for the worker, but for the employer as well. Some of the hazards a lone worker may face are
- Accidents or emergencies that arise from the work he is doing (Environmental risk)
- Physical violence from intruders or members of the public (Social risk)
- Sudden illness
Employers have the main responsibility for protecting and securing the safety and health of their lone workers. In fact, employers have a legal duty to reduce the risks of physical and verbal workplace abuse for their workers. If you employ people who work alone, either on-premises or off, you need to consider both existing and potential risks to their safety – and how to reduce them.
