Safeguarding your lone workers
Although lone working is completely legal, all employers have a duty of care to mitigate any risks to employees’ safety. It’s proven that lone workers are an easy target for crime, with no backup available they are at a greater risk. The Health and Safety Executive has put together comprehensive guidance on the risks of lone working which helps employers understand what they need to do to legally protect employees.
This legal requirement to protect employees and in particular lone workers, can put pressure on employers, which is why we offer a lone worker protection service at Shield. Let us give you and your lone workers peace of mind with our quick response solution.
Fully managed on your behalf we agree with you a plan for contact with your lone worker and if they don’t make contact at regular agreed intervals, we are able to swiftly intervene utilising our 24/7/365 control room and mobile patrols.
