If you employ workers who spend time alone on the job, they are some of your most significant safety liabilities. It’s incredibly dangerous to work alone, whether you are a social worker or a realtor. Fortunately, you have numerous solutions for enhancing the safety of employees who work alone or spend a great deal of time working alone. How can you protect your most vulnerable employees?
During a threat or attack, an alarm that is very loud can help your employees to communicate to each other or customers that they are not alone and warn anyone wishing to do them harm that they have security systems in place. There are different wearable alarms you can provide employees with or even smartphone apps that are designed to protect them from harm. We suggest that you be as creative as possible when ensuring the safety of lone employees.
Many thieves and people looking to cause harm are opportunists, which means that they are looking for the easiest way to get what they want with the lowest possible chance of getting caught. As a result, putting together a strong deterrent that sends a clear “stay out” message can deter even the craftiest and most opportunistic burglars. Employees who are working alone and not based in a specific office could carry a visual deterrent that alerts the police if it is pulled or blown. When warning anyone wishing to do them harm that it exists, they might completely remove themselves from a dangerous situation.
Signal for Help
Along with an audible alarm (or if a loud alarm wouldn’t do the trick), you should also devise a way to signal for help. Smartphone apps can allow employees to quickly alert their employer or authorities if they are in an unsafe situation. Some devices can call emergency services or other employees nearby if an intruder takes a worker’s phone or a certain device is activated.
