Lone worker alarms come in various shapes and sizes, but the best ones are simple devices which can be worn multiple ways. Devices like the First2HelpYou KIT device can be worn on belt clips, used as a key fob, or one of the most popular options – as an ID badge.
Working from home is becoming increasingly common. The last set of data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) shows that the number of home workers in the UK has increased by nearly a quarter of a million over a decade. It is estimated that more than five million people work from home, either all of the time or are able to work flexibly, spending part of their time at home.
It is a fact that working alone carries high risks, not only from ill health or adverse conditions, but it also has a higher risk of lone workers being subjected to violence or attack.
In this blog we will explore what the risks of violence and, the effect they have on the employee and the employer, and how they can be reduced.
Welcome to First2HelpYou and our blog. We are a new business to enter the lone worker alarms market and we are delighted to just this week, bring our innovative products and service offering to the table. We might be the new kids on the block, but with a few industry experienced brains working away in the background we naturally decided to establish a blog and a knowledge bank, where we can talk about all things lone workerish.
