Lone Worker Security

The issue of Lone Worker Safety & Security is becoming more wide reaching within every level of an organization. Far from being a consideration exclusive to the individual lone worker, management level staff and business leaders are increasingly aware of the need to protect their most valuable assets.

What is a Lone Worker?

A lone worker is anyone who works by themselves without close or direct supervision. This can include someone who often works alone and remote from a brick and mortar office such as an outside sales rep, social worker, utility technician or home health nurse. It can also include someone who works in a remote area of a large facility or at an outdoor site. The associated danger of a lone working position can be social or environmental. Social risk exists where contact with the general public is commonplace and risk of verbal assault and threat or risk of physical attack are present. Environmental risk is common in job roles where employees are exposed to instances of ‘Incapacitation’ situations due to working at dangerous heights, in extreme heat, with electricity or chemicals, etc.

A Progressive Approach to Protecting Your Most Valuable Assets

Duty of care may be a shared responsibility between a lone worker and their employer however it has never been more important for an organization to meet that duty. In addition to the type of risks that are posed to lone working individuals, also worth considering is the level of risk and liability associated with worker safety carried by the organization. Imagine the benefits of capturing audio evidence of verbal abuse or of being notified in just minutes of a 'Incapacitation' incident. The SoloProtect solution provides that and more.

Many companies have adopted a progressive approach to protecting their employees and SoloProtect provides a comprehensive and affordable solution to meet this need.
