Lone worker devices make lone work safer

Employers of lone workers are responsible for ensuring the safety of their employees.  The lone working alarms are dedicated safety devices designed to ensure the lone worker safety. Depending on each country's safety regulations for working alone or in isolation, the employer needs to take care of its employees safety. 

A dedicated lone worker safety device may be necessary for that specific lone working job.  Lone worker protection and lone working devices are mostly needed in industries where alone working situations are part of the daily work routines.  This kind of lone working jobs may require work in isolation or far from other employees in addition to physical or social risks related to the nature of the work. To improve the lone worker safety in these lone working situations, the employer can find the most suitable lone worker alarm solution by evaluating the lone working situations and risks in the industry. 

Lone worker protection starts with risk assessment

Lone  worker risk management begins with assessment of faced risks, such as accidents or violence. Understanding of the risks can then be used to assess what type of lone worker devices and systems are  needed. 

At the lowest risk level, a normal smart phone may be sufficient to call for help. A safety phone with alarm button, doubling as mobile phone, is often suited for moderate risk scenarios. A dedicated lone worker alarm may be required in high-risk situations, for reliable safety functions as well as to reduce multitasking risks in the device itself.

Environmental, social and physical risks are constant element for lone workers in many sectors. Several laws about lone worker protection in different countries stipulate employers to protect their staff.
