Lone worker protection for office workers .
Why have a lone worker solution?
When it comes to lone working, you don’t think of an office being a particularly hazardous place to be. Despite being at less risk of violence, the office environment causes its own share of accidents and injuries.
Examples of lone workers at risk in an office.
What lone working risks exist in an office?
As we look for a better work/life balance, the demand for flexible hours and working from home has increased by 20% in the last 10* years and is set to continue to increase, putting added pressure on to managers to keep workers protected.
Furthermore, employees who work alone in an office outside normal working hours, or visiting clients alone are classed as lone workers.
Although this sector may be considered a lower risk, this is not a reason to avoid protecting your lone working office staff, who still require adequate protection to remain safe. A lone worker alarm can reduces risk of harm to any situation.
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.
