Are your employees covered?
The Corporate Manslaughter Act 2008 – You have the responsibility as an employer to protect your work force. The Health & Safety Executive recommends that procedures be put in place to protect and monitor lone workers ensuring their safety.
A balanced approach is needed to ensure that procedures are not too onerous on employees, or too restrictive. The most effective lone worker solutions provide a combination of technology, training and a monitoring service.
The dangers and problems that lone workers may face have been illustrated by some high profile incidents. The best known is that of the Estate Agent, Suzy Lamplugh, who went missing following an appointment to show a prospective client around a property. Her disappearance dramatically raised the profile of the risks associated with being a lone worker.
Lone workers can be identified as individuals working alone or without close or direct supervision.
