Plant i have a New GPS lone worker tracking device.
We have been looking at several Lone worker devices for many years but at last we have a solution that we can offer with confidence.
This new small device allows two way communication with Powerful built in GPS.
The device can be configured to your needs and alert when it detects no movement or no manual update. The device can also act as a tracking system on our web based mapping and reports.
Do you know your legal requirements as an employer?
Your responsibilities to lone workers
You have the same health and safety responsibilities for lone workers as you do for other people who work for you.
Your first step should be to carry out a health and safety risk assessment. This highlights areas where further action may be needed to remove or minimise the chance of incidents occurring.
Lone workers may be affected by many of the same health and safety risks as other workers. But there are potential risks which are more likely to affect lone workers. You should:
- Ensure lone workers are medically fit and suitable for the lone-working role they have been assigned.
- Be aware that some tasks may be too difficult or dangerous to be carried out by an unaccompanied worker.
- Provide some level of supervision – such as regular visits – for lone workers. See the page in this guide on how to monitor lone workers’ health and safety effectively
- Put contact procedures in place for emergencies so that the alarm can be raised and prompt medical attention provided if there is an accident.
- Make provision for lone workers – from fast-food delivery drivers to security personnel – who may be faced with a risk of violence.
- Check whether there are specific legal requirements. In some high-risk occupations such as diving, lone working is not allowed.
