How To Protect Lone Workers

Due to a high increase in crime rates worldwide but also the fact that the number of lone workers is undoubtedly increasing driven by advances in wireless communications technology, lone workers’ safety has become a very important issue in many civilized countries. For example, “it is estimated that 22% of the UK’s working population are actually lone workers” a number that is undoubtedly increasing. Companies that employ lone workers, have a duty to assess their risks and take steps so as to avoid or control them where necessary. They may need to take extra precautions to ensure that lone workers are at no greater risk than any other employees.

MyLoneWorkers is the “little brother” of the very successful QR-Patrol. QR-Patrol, which was introduced in 2014 by Terracom, is an innovative cloud solution for security companies and organizations that operate with guards in real time. QR-Patrol is considered one of the fastest growing Guard Tour Patrol systems in the market with more than 700 customers in 47 countries as well as an established network of distributors in 21. The application was considered as groundbreaking by the EU and has received a grand under Horizon 2020, to start developing its successor QR-Patrol PRO.

Lone workers demographic increase

Lone workers should not be put at more risk than other employees. Establishing a healthy and safe working environment for lone workers can be different from organizing the health and safety of other employees.

In the last few years, working alone has become a wide trend with the lone worker demographic increasing day by day. Work can be done, alone, from just about anywhere: from a home office, travelling for a meeting with a client by train or even working in a local coffee shop. Generally, this change from traditional based environments to lone working is regarded as a positive step; however, it is still an employer’s duty to take care and protect staff working alone during contracted hours.

What are the dangers and the most realistic operational risks that lone workers might be exposed to?

Hazards that lone workers may encounter include:

Accidents or emergencies arising out of the work, including inadequate provision of first aid

Personal wellbeing risks, including health issues caused by a known medical condition or brought about by being in stressful situations Inadequate provision of rest, hygiene and welfare facilities

Inadequate provision of rest, hygiene and welfare facilities

Violence and aggression (physical or verbal) - for example, potentially vulnerable workers may include emergency medical professionals, social or health care workers

Injuries from animals are also relevant in some occupations e.g. postmen
