What’s the best lone worker solution for your employees?

First2HelpYou has many different lone worker solutions available to help you keep your employees safe. Whether your employees work alone or in a high-risk environment, we understand that choosing the right solution can be difficult.

Determine what type of lone workers you employ

Firstly, it’s important to understand what type of lone workers you employ. Lone workers can be broadly categorised into three different groups, each with distinct risk profiles:

  • Public-facing – Housing, Social Services, Local Government, Nursing.
  • Fixed location – Manufacturing, Security, Office, Home.
  • Mobile – Delivery, Community, Surveying, Engineering.

By grouping your workforce, you may find that all of your employees
have the same requirements, or you may have a mixture. Establishing what duties your employees perform, when and where, will make choosing the right solution easier. However, if you’re still struggling, First2HelpYou is more than happy to help guide you through this process.

What is your budget?

Budget constraints shouldn’t be a reason not to protect your employees. This is why First2HelpYou offers flexible pricing on all of its devices and app/s to ensure that employers can meet the needs of health and safety legislations.

What risks might your employees face?

You must be aware of the hazards that your lone workers might face. This will help determine which device is most suitable for your employee(s). Understanding the hazards will allow both the employer and employee(s) to make the appropriate decision to uphold the highest safety standards to protect the lone worker.

We have listed some examples of potential hazards below:

  • Acts of violence
  • Handling lifting or carrying
  • Slips, trips or falls
  • Risk to a person’s mental health and wellbeing

A risk assessment must be completed so that your lone worker needs are understood and met. Only then can the correct lone worker solution be decided upon.
