Lone Workers are employees in an industry who perform tasks in isolation away from any other employees or an office. Most often these lone workers are working in extreme spaces that are dangerous or that offer little to no protection. With these exposures in mind, companies who are responsible for lone worker protection must make considerable efforts to make sure that their employees are kept safe.
Within the past decade technological advances have been made and implemented in industries across the world to provide security for lone workers. One of the most used and effective tools used for lone worker devices is mobile panic buttons. These devices have the power to send an exact location to authorities or an intended network of people. Mobile panic buttons have been proven to be lifesaving and Response Technologies houses the best devices on the market.
The list of the lone workers we protect continues to grow. Nurses, Home Healthcare Workers, Factory Workers and even Realtors are just some of the industries that we have made an impact in, when it comes to employee personal protection. There has become a growing need to keep these workers safe, due to the dangers both new and common.
What dangers are lone workers facing?
No matter the industry, lone workers have faced a growing account of threats and increased violence. Realtors have faced a growing threat with risks of house showings. In 2018, 9% of agents said that they have been attacked at a house showing. In 2017, 48 real estate professionals died while on the job. These accounts and threats could be altered with real-time security alert technology.
Statistically speaking, healthcare professionals and are victims of violence more so than another other employee group. According to the Becker’s Hospital Review, more than 5,200 nursing professionals were assaulted in the second quarter of 2022 alone. This alarming number of assaults shows that there needs to be a tool on site that professionals can use that will keep people safe.
