IT IS NO WIDELY ACCEPTED THAT LONE WORKERS CANNOT, BY THEIR NATURE, BE SUPERVISED BY CONVENTIONAL MEANS. HOWEVER, MONITORING THE SAFETY BEHAVIOUR OF LONE WORKERS REMAINS A CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY.
SatSafe helps organisations fulfil their Duty of Care to employees. Our services are not just about protecting lone workers and employees at risk, we also help protect employers from potential ruinous litigation.
Whilst our location-based security devices improve the productivity and well-being of workers, they are also proven to help increase morale and staff confidence knowing that if they need assistance, they have the back up of a trained professional to assist them in any emergency.
Something we always stress to our customers is that SatSafe lone worker devices are designed to empower workers as they use it as part of their daily risk assessment and to reduce any risks they encounter as part of their working day. Tracking of individuals can be a contentious issue. However, the need to locate an individual worker should the need arise, offers considerable benefits to an organisation employing lone workers.
This is exactly where SatSafe comes to the fore. We have professional tracking solutions designed specifically for the corporate sector. The term “lone worker” covers several different types of employees, including:
- individuals working alone out in the field
- home health nurses
- estate agents
- sales people
All remote workers deserve the same commitment from their employer as any type of employee when it comes to their Health & Safety (personal security) needs whilst performing their work duties.
Risk of personal injury become increasingly likely whenever the worker is performing tasks in a client’s workplace as these areas, (normally a patient’s home), is out of the employer’s control. In these scenarios, one of the biggest problems for the lone worker is that in the event of an emergency where accident or injury occurs, there may be no one immediately available to assist them.
Our personal tracking devices supply vital communication between a lone worker and emergency aid with GPS satellite identification of the worker’s location. Our secure servers can locate and update information by the second and coupled with two-way voice communication, our personal tracking solutions mean that the right resources can be dispatched to assist at the right time to the right location.
With more emphasis on safety than ever before more employers are taking greater steps in the protection of their employees. We understand that no matter where your lone worker is, he or she may need to get in touch quickly if danger threatens.
As new legislation comes into force, employers need to look at ways of reducing these costs and at the same time meet their legal duty of care.
SatSafe provides a variety of ‘At Risk’ lone worker personal safety solutions for lone worker protection to anyone facing the threat of verbal or physical abuse during their working day.
Lone workers or remote workers will immediately benefit from increased peace of mind knowing they are better protected by an ACPO approved device with the support available 24/7/365 through an approved alarm receiving centre.
