First2HelpYou are back in the office after another great year at the Health and Safety Event 2019. Read on for some photos and our summary of the event.
Are lone working sub contractors your responsibility? Read our blog to find out about contractors and your duties, plus what measures you can put in place to help keep them safe.
Safety and personal responsibility go hand in hand. True, a company director has overall responsibility for health and safety but each person in an organisation has a duty to protect themselves. Given the right tools and education, this is easy to do. If you already own a First2HelpYou lone worker device or your employees use them, we have listed some ways below that you can help you maximise the use you get from your device.
We hope all of our customers are enjoying their Christmas breaks and for those who are working, they are staying safe. First2HelpYou will be open over the holiday period to help those customers of ours who are also working but as we approach the New Year, we thought we would have a roundup of 2018.
David Atkins is Head of Product and Implementation here at First2HelpYou and is the brain behind our fabulous KIT lone worker device.
We managed to grab 10 minutes with him for a coffee and a chat to find out what makes the KIT device the best on the lone worker market and how it all came about.
It’s now over two years since the Labour MP Jo Cox was murdered. She was simply going about her daily business serving her constituents in Birstall, West Yorkshire, when the perpetrator, Thomas Mair attacked her in the street; he shot Jo then stabbed her twice, she died at the scene.
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.
After our success at the Health and Safety Event earlier this year, First2HelpYou will be joining our friends over at the Lone Worker Safety Expo this October. Read on for more details about this must-attend conference for anyone who manages or works with lone workers.
