Lone Worker Protection

Phone line lone worker protection

Lone Worker Safety

Not all employees face threat and violence every day of their working lives. However, many do work alone - for long periods of time or in short bursts. In some cases the only method of communication can be via phone line.

LONEALERT Check-Call provides these employees with flexible, simple to use protection whilst they are alone. Check-Call will work on ANY phone; accounts can be live in less than 24 hours; user set-up and training takes 15 minutes – delivered without taking staff out of the field.

Check-Call works seamlessly alongside the Text-In and Online service allowing users to use the most appropriate method, depending upon their circumstances, or preference.

LONEALERT can distinguish between multiple workers even when calling in from the same number – making it suitable for office based workers.

Staff log in and out of LONEALERT, as required, either through a field risk assessment or as stipulated by the employer’s policy. Each check in defines how long they will be lone working, from 1 minute upwards, and details of their location – so appropriate assistance can be sent swiftly to the rescue.

In common with the rest of the LONEALERT range, LONEALERT Check-Call comes with a panic feature to discreetly call for immediate assistance.

LONEALERT Check-Call is perfect for lone workers who work alone but not directly at risk all of the time; or who work in areas of poor signal but with good access to phones – e.g. Nurses, Carers, Office based staff, or Home Workers.

Simple to operate, quick to train, protect your lone workers today.

Check-Call for Europe

Across Europe, the number of those working from home, all or some of the time is consistently growing. This brings with it different challenges for the employer. These employee’s are often working with no supervision, yet require the same consideration to Health and Safety in the workplace as office based employees.

On average one out of 710 accidents in the EU was fatal in 2012.

The hazards for trips and falls over leads, cords etc are the same also. So how does an employer make sure they are meeting their Duty of Care to home or location independent workers? LONEALERT’s simple Check Call system allows users to simply periodically check in over their phone line, or even check in on the internet.

Failure to check in will raise the alert and so the welfare of the lone worker can be ascertained. A panic feature allows the alert to be raised more promptly in the event of illness or trespass to the property.

Check-Call for Americas

According to Forbes, one in five Americans work from home, and this number is rising.

Nearly 2.9 million (94.9 percent) of the more than 3.0 million nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses in 2013 were injuries. Among injuries, over 2.1 million (75.5 percent) occurred in service-providing industries, which employed 82.4 percent of the private industry workforce. The remaining 0.7 million injuries (24.5 percent) occurred in goods-producing industries, which accounted for 17.6 percent of private industry employment in 2013.

So how do employers keep employeer’s safe when they can’t see them; when they are working at the end of a telephone line and internet connection? With a strong communications network, why not use the very tools of work to keep people safe? LONEALERT’s Check Call system allows workers to buddy up with our comprehensive lone worker solution by either calling in to Check in, or by using the web to do the same.

A panic feature allows emergency assistance to be called for. Once a check call is activated, the worker simply calls or logs-in periodically. Failure to do so raises the alarm immediately, to colleagues or to the LONEALERT Responder service.

Check-Call for Oceania

Technological developments, including cloud-based systems have seen a rapid increase in home-based employees and businesses. This combined with regular sub-contractors sees a large proportion of the workforce exposed to risk without the close proximity of workmates who can assist or react to an incident or accident on their behalf.

The economic costs of work-based accidents are a burden on the individual and his/her family in addition to the whole society. The overall impacts are further amplified by the hidden or indirect costs which can be substantially more than the direct costs.

The hazards of an office still exist in a home working environment and these employees and workers need to be kept safe when they can be many miles away from their nearest colleague. It is imperative that employers meet their Duty of Care to staff by ensuring a safe working environment.

LONEALERT’s Check-Call system allows employers to do this. Our comprehensive Lone Worker solution keeps employees safe by allowing them to either call in over a landline to check in, or by using the web to do the same. A panic button can be used to call for emergency assistance. Once a Check-Call is activated, the worker simply calls or logs in periodically. Failure to do so will raise an immediate alarm to the LONEALERT Responder service, or to colleagues.

Check-Call for Asia

Asia has a booming sub-contract economy working in software development, telesales and new internet based industries, the very skills of cloud based working mean that more and more workers have the ability to work from home. In doing so, they are exposed to similar risks as those working in an office environment, but without the close proximity of colleagues to raise the alarm if an accident occurs.

Occupational accidents cause direct and indirect or hidden costs for the whole society. A popular way to demonstrate this is the iceberg model. There are many variations of the proportion of the costs but usually the proportion of indirect costs is much bigger than direct costs

LONEALERT allows employers to safe guard employees by offering them the LONEALERT Check Call service. Providing employee’s with the opportunity to log into the LONEALERT lone worker protection solution via their landline phone, or the internet means that employees can quickly and cost effectively create a Check Call, which if they miss will raise the alert. A panic feature also allows employee’s under duress to call for emergency assistance.

Check-Call for Africa

As the world’s second-fastest-growing region, many of the new wage-paying jobs being created will involve home, remote or location independent working.

The difference in accident rates between developed and developing countries is remarkable. While many enterprises in developed countries are taking zero accident policy for their goal, construction of infrastructure and industrialization in developing countries bring new situations to surface. Enterprises in developing countries are unable to identify their hazards.

Due to the large geographic distances, it is often more effective to recruit and employ skilled staff on a home based basis. How are these staff kept safe when they can be many miles away from their nearest colleague? The hazards of an office still exist in a home working environment, and it is key employers meet their Duty of Care to staff be ensuring a safe environment.

LONEALERT’s Check Call system allows employers to do this. Our comprehensive lone worker solution keeps the employee safe by allowing them to either call in over a landline to Check in, or by using the web to do the same. A panic button calls for emergency assistance. Once a check call is activated, the worker simply calls or logs-in periodically. Failure to do so raises the alarm immediately, the LONEALERT Responder service, or to colleagues.
