Business Risks of Lone Working
Can you afford not to protect your lone workers?
Aside from protecting lone workers simply being 'the right thing to do', employers are reducing the many costs and potential risks to their employees and the organization, which arise from lone working issues. The more frequently you place your workers in lone working situations, the more they are exposed to risks to their health, safety and well-being and in turn, the more likely it is you will be faced with the internal organizational and monetary consequences of those incidents and increased liability.
Consider the costs that result from the following:
- Reputational brand damage
- Staff absence due to stress resulting from verbal abuse or from injuries following incidents of physical assault or occurrence of a 'Incapacitation' situation
- Defending litigation
- Time spent reporting and investigating incidents
- Escalating employee liability insurance costs for 'at risk' workers
Implementing the SoloProtect solution is a proactive means of curtailing the risk associated with lone working. It allows you to provide audit proof that a lone worker policy is being adhered to and encourages dynamic risk assessment among your employees via use of the 'Status Checks' and 'Yellow Alerts'
