Developing a Free Lone Worker Program

If an emergency occurs, lone workers rarely have the resources or back-up necessary to safely deal with the situation alone. Situations that involve confrontation, personal injury, or violence, can quickly become serious if immediate help is not available. Many organizations employ staff who are considered to be lone workers. Any adverse situation can become life-threatening if not immediately detected and resolved. This is why every organization should have a check-in system in place to ensure the safety of their people throughout the day, regardless of their location or activity.  

Developing Your FREE Lone Worker Check-in System for Small Teams 

An effective lone worker monitoring system does not necessarily have to come with a large price tag. In fact, with the right planning and implementation, your company can easily develop its own system – without spending a cent. Here is our step-by-step guide to developing your own FREE lone worker check-in system. The process itself is straightforward, can be implemented by any business, and will grant your company a multitude of benefits, including reduced instances of workplace injuries, accidents, and a lower probability of litigation. Our guide also includes a comprehensive checklist that will keep you on track while developing your program and a worksheet that provides additional details on each step.    

Have Confidence In Your People’s Safety 

Maintaining regular contact with your workforce is an essential part of keeping them safe. All you need to do is determine pre-set intervals where monitors can expect to hear from your workers on the job. If an employee misses a check-in, you will immediately know that something is wrong and be able to act quickly. Having a check-in system in place is effective because it does not rely on an employee’s ability to call for help.

Manual vs Automated Check-In Systems 

For small teams, free manual check-in systems may be the answer. However, because they depend on monitors and other worker input, they may be prone to human error. Automated, cloud-based systems are 100% failproof and can be integrated with a wide variety of existing devices to provide comprehensive coverage for each worker in your organization, no matter the size. Discover the benefits of implementing an automated check-in system here.
