About Lone & Vulnerable Workers

What Are Lone And Isolated Workers?

A lone or isolated worker is anyone working in their normal role, without close support or supervision and in isolation from other employees. This relates to them working full time, part time or even on a casual basis. 

The lone worker is at greater risk, as generally they do not have anyone close by if they are threatened or face a serious safety concern. This is combined with the fact that the lone worker is often viewed as a more vulnerable, easy target. To try and mitigate this risk, organisations will often send employees out in pairs, which unfortunately can be inefficient, costly and may also place the second employee at risk.

Vulnerable Worker Safety Devices

The Type Of Work Which Can Be Of Concern Includes:

To overcome this risk, lone & vulnerable worker safety devices have been developed to provide both pro-active and re-active alerts that can provide location information, event status, together with one-way or two-way voice communication. These alerts can be either self-monitored or actioned by a 24/7 monitoring centre to provide heightened response. 

Additional benefits include welfare check-in capability as well as event updates and potential hazard event notifications. These include environmental dangers (e.g., fires or floods), or manmade threats (e.g., terrorism or on-site shooter)
