Choosing the right lone worker solution can seem like a bit of a minefield, so to make it easier, we have created a town that is dedicated to lone workers or people at risk, called LonesVille. Start at The O.W.L and simply work your way around the town, building your lone worker solution as you go.
The O.W.L is our flexible, interactive interface that allows you to be in constant control of your staff. It is the behind-the-scenes mechanics of LONEALERT. Without it, LONEALERT will not function and will not be able to oversee the safety of your lone / mobile workers. To help you understand the importance of The O.W.L, we have put together a set of frequently asked questions & our answers. If you have any further questions, please get in touch!
At times in our working day, we are all lone workers regardless of the industry in which we work. The difference is that some job roles have a higher level of risk. Within this section you will be able to download relevant risk assessments, understand which lone worker device would best suit your industry and understand why you or your employees may be at risk and the solutions that are available to help protect you. What is your job role?
Choosing the right device for yourself or your employees is vitally important. This part of the town will allow you to be able to look and compare the large range of devices that we have available. It may be that not one device will suit all of your lone workers. The good news, is that as our devices work in conjunction with The O.W.L, so you will be able to mix and match as many lone worker devices as you need. To ease your decision making process, we have arranged our products in to different ranges, all of which are suitable for any job role, any level of risk and for any budget.
Your response is the last stop in building your lone worker solution. Within this section you will find a number of options available for you to choose from. However, it may not be a one response suits all type of scenario, thankfully, our intuitive O.W.L not only allows you to be able to control your responses, it also allows you to mix them, meaning that you could have type of response which works in the day and a higher level response that could be needed for the evening. You will also find in this section details around Emergency services and what do it an international response is needed.
LONEALERT is one of the UK’s leading providers of lone worker protection solutions, delivering a range of lone worker alarms, devices, apps and solutions to protect people who work alone, remotely or are vulnerable in their work.
On average 6 million people work alone in the UK. This figure is expected to rise as the continued change in working habits forces more remote working. Lone workers are everywhere. They have many faces and work in many industries. Are your lone workers safe?
Employers have a legal duty to carry out risk assessments of any work-related activities which present a risk to personal safety. This policy should identify who might be harmed, the dangers they face and any measures that can be taken to prevent and reduce the risk of injury.
