Lone worker protection for industrial and manufacturing workers .
Why have a lone worker solution?
Workers within this sector are often at risk within the workplace from lifting heavy objects, operating machinery, moving vehicles and working at height. Most workers will find themselves having to work alone for prolonged periods of time, or in isolated areas of the site, leaving them exposed to greater risks and accidents. Lone Worker Alarms and proper lone worker training reduce risk for these individuals.

What lone working risks exist in the industrial and manufacturing industry?
One of the biggest fears to any employer is that a member of staff could be hurt and left without being found for an extended period of time. Lone workers in these industries are more vulnerable to accidents such as slips, falls, machinery malfunctions, or being injured by equipment.
Statistics from HSE show that in 2015/16 144 workers were killed as a result of a work place accident, the majority of these being either falling from height or being struck by a moving vehicle/object.
Our risk assessment.
To carry out a risk assessment you need to think about what might cause harm to your employees and decide whether you are taking the reasonable steps needed to prevent any harm.
A risk assessment is something you are required to carry out by law. We have created a comprehensive risk assessment for people within the utilities industry.
LONEALERT Solutions for the industrial industry.
Staff in the industrial and manufacturing industry are rarely alone in the truest sense of the word, as the work environment is often swarming with people. Even the busiest site will have quiet areas – basement areas hardly anyone goes in, plant rooms, lift shafts. Other employees may be mere metres away, but have no way of knowing a colleague needs help, unless they go and check. These days, everyone is busy and time can fly by.
We have a variety of solutions that will help you, all of which are controlled by The OWL, so you can mix and match solutions to suit your needs. The OWL allows you to set up personalised or companywide escalation procedures that will come into effect as soon as an alarm is raised.
