Hazards working alone exist where people are by themselves, in isolation or without contact with colleagues or family.
Certain environments increase risk to family and employees where customers or the public are more likely to become upset, aggressive or take advantage of a lone worker.
Environments where alcohol, gambling and/or money are involved as well as sensitive social work can cause sudden mood changes. It is often the lone worker who faces the backlash and are left dealing with the customer or patient on their own.

How do you know if your workers are safe? A lone worker policy is a guide that will set out your companies’ rules on working alone and help your employees to understand the risks of their role. It should also provide them with practical advice and instruction on how to safely carry out their jobs.
A regular review of both your risk assessments and lone worker policy, will help you to know if your lone workers are safe. You may also wish to carry out inspections to ensure safe work practices are being followed.
Monitoring is incredibly important in managing the safety of lone workers, due to the associated risks and difficulty in receiving nearby assistance or raising an alarm. Regular communication should be maintained with lone working staff and procedures put in place so that employees can quickly communicate with their employer and raise the alarm if needed.
Employees are able to start a timed session before they begin a period of lone work or travel. This triggers a countdown and activates a satellite GPS tracker, visible in the Hub. If an employee fails to end their session safely, a session expiry alert will be sent to the monitor.
The panic button allows an employee to send an immediate panic alert if they are in trouble and need assistance. This alert can be triggered in the app at any time, even if a session is not running.
If an employee is being forced by an attacker to terminate the app, a ‘false pin’ can be entered to appear as if the session has been cancelled when, in fact, a panic alarm has been triggered.
Low battery warnings allow you to remind an employee to charge their phone if it is running low.
Employees can set fixed check-in periods within a session. Employees are able to check in at any point within this time to confirm that they are safe and reset the clock. Failure to do so by the end of the timed period will raise a missed check-in.
A panic alert can also be triggered discreetly using the phone’s power button, allowing an alert to be raised discreetly from the user’s pocket or handbag.
If an employee has not moved for a prolonged period of time and not checked in, a non-movement alert is triggered in case there has been an accident.
Lone workers are prompted to check in or end their session in order to reduce false alerts.
This service requires no hardware for the user. Users are individually set up with their work and or personal mobile number.
