Lone Worker Protection Systems
Who is a lone worker?
A lone worker is an employee who performs tasks or works in isolation from other workers without close or direct supervision. It is important to note that other employees such as those dealing with members of the public may also be at risk and require a protection solution.
At Risk Employees
With the number of organisations offering flexible working practices on the rise, there are more at risk employees than ever before.
Do you need lone worker protection?
The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) requires employers to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all of their employees. An employer must conduct a risk assessment for their employees and then take all reasonable steps to mitigate the risks to an acceptable level. See http://www.hse.gov.uk/toolbox/workers/lone.htm
