(June 9, 2015 ) Dallas, TX -- SoloProtect, A Division of Kings III Emergency Communications offering safety focused employee monitoring for lone worker protection in the US, released The ASSE Safety 2015 Professional Development Conference & Exposition Proceedings Paper: Lone Worker Protection: The Need Is Here. Are You Filling It? Over the last 15 years, workplace violence has risen to become one of the top four causes of occupational fatalities on the job in the United States. Nearly 4,500 workers were killed on the job in 2013. This averages out to an astounding 83 lives lost each week and 12 each day of the year according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Many of these tragic incidents could be mitigated if only the proper safety precautions were taken by employers.

Workplace injury and violence hits U.S. businesses with a price tag of over $4 billion annually as estimated by the National Safe Workplace Institute. Missed work, legal fees, insurance premiums, medical expense, and negative publicity – all come at high cost to your company. “Proactive employee safety protection is becoming an increasing priority to US employers. The Safety 2015 Proceedings Paper asks the question: Are you filling the need for lone worker protection?
