When working alone, there are many things that could happen to you. It's important to use safety devices to prevent accidents and injuries.
Don't Leave The House Without a Plan B.
If you're going to work alone, make sure you have a plan B. You should also consider what would happen if something were to go wrong. What would you do if you got stuck somewhere? Would you call for help? How would you signal for help? Do you have any special equipment that will help you stay safe? A work alone device will allow you to achieve two-way communication from anywhere, pinpoint your exact location, and have a third-party monitoring team behind it dispatch emergency services to you if needed.
Lone worker safety devices
There are dozens of lone worker safety devices available on the market. If your organization has employees working alone in different environments, you may need a complex solution to satisfy all lone working requirements. For example, at a utility company where there are hundreds of lone workers, you may see a solution that includes are more affordable app-based check-in system for meter readers who are usually within cellular service range, coupled with a standalone device for employees who perform maintenance on power lines in remote locations or have to enter confined areas and require gas detection capabilities.
It’s important to recognize when one size fits all, and when a complex solution is required.
