What are lone workers

Lone Worker devices by Blackline Safety

Working alone or in an isolated area draws risks that can create many serious and fatal situations. While it is regulation to monitor employees working remotely there is also a corporate responsibility from each company tolook after their work force. Lone worker is an umbrella term used for a variety of workers.

 

This is typically workers in the industrial sector working with dangerous chemicals, gases, equipment, at height or in remote locations. This term has now begun to include any one who works by themselves including couriers, support/health care workers and many others. To ensure the safety of these workers, in the past call ins or tedious worker monitoring systems have often been used. With the latest instalment of Black Line Safety’s Work Alone devices time has been cut and money has been saved in ensuring the safety of workers.

The importance of work alone devices

The broad range of work alone devices give employers instant notice when an incident has occurred or additionally have Blacklines own safety operations centre respond to incidents. This flexibility gives you around the clock safety monitoring when employers are not available. Along with the back to base support each device has a different use and function available depending on the situation it is used in. In remote areas with limited or no 3G there are options with satellite, likewise if your device needs fall detection or just GPS tracking or maybe you only need the application on your smartphone, there are options and plans available for all different scenarios.

Regulations to working alone

As of the 1st of January 2014, it has become compulsory for employers to monitor the health and wellbeing of any of their employees working remotely or in isolated conditions. Control measures are now in place to ensure effective communication and worker monitoring are in place as well as access to assistance of emergency services for isolated or remote workers.  Regulation 48 from the Managing the Work Environment and Facilities Code of Practice 2011 outlines definitions of isolated and remote workers as well as possible control measures and should be read for more information in regard to this law.

Accidents in the work place/while working

As important is it to following regulation, companies have a responsibility to look after their employees. Safe Work Australia recorded in 2014 that 188 employees lost their lives while at work and that on average 0.52 fatalities occurred each day. Using work alone devices companies are aiming to reduce these workplace accidents and fatalities. It also provides workers with peace of mind that if an incident is to occur the correct people will be notified to provide help.
