Guardian24 help employers to comply with current legislation by ensuring that your Lone Worker policy and risk assessment is set up.

There are more and more Lone Workers in the private and public sector. There is an established trend of growing numbers of employees working from home or on a mobile basis. At the same time these employees are encountering citizens or customers who may be upset, depressed, angry or simply unpredictable.

Under the Corporate Manslaughter Act in 2008 along with the Health and Safety (offenses act 2008); employers have a ‘Duty of Care’ to help protect these employees who work alone.

So how does an organisation with a need to work with individuals, combine delivering a good service with ensuring the safety of the employee?

The answer is a Lone Worker safety solution. These enable employees to log their location and tasks and other information as needed. If their safety is compromised then they can easily and quickly summon help.

Guardian24 help employers to comply with current legislation such as Corporate Manslaughter by ensuring that your Lone Worker policies and procedures are compliant and up to date.

One of the most important elements when implementing a lone worker solution is the ability for management within your organisation to effectively review, monitor and maintain control of your lone and mobile worker safety strategy.
