ONE SOLUTION TO MITIGATE MULTIPLE LONE WORKER RISKS

WHEN THE HEALTH AND SAFETY AT WORK ACT COMES INTO LAW ON APRIL 4TH 2016 WILL YOU BE READY?

If you have people that routinely work alone for at least part of their day but haven’t noted the risk on your hazard register and taken “all reasonably practicable” steps to mitigate the specific risks faced by these colleagues, then chances are you won’t be.

At SoloProtect we’re working hard to ensure lone workers are kept as safe as those working in teams and SoloProtect can help mitigate the following risks:

  • • 
    Workplace violence. Even the threat of violence can be debilitating and result in unnecessary stress and lost time. When you’re alone and it happens the impact is amplified. SoloProtect helps mitigate these risks with 24/7 real time monitoring, GPS location with redundancy, two-way voice, voice recording, ripcord alarm and a discrete form factor. The Identicom device can also be useful as a de-escalation tool.
  • • 
    Slips, trips and falls. When you’re by yourself and your phone or radio isn’t handy, how soon will help arrive? Solo-Protect’s multi-sensor automatic “mandown” feature raises the alarm when you can’t, yet minimises costly call outs caused by false alarms. The two-way voice feature provides reassurance that help is on the way.
  • • 
    Vehicle accidents. There were 11,219 people injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2014. SoloProtect’s impact sensor technology, Mandown feature, GPS location, and 24/7 real time monitoring will get help fast.

We’ll also help you close the compliance loop with:

  • • 
    Unlimited, train as many people as you like, auditable e-learning platform
  • • 
    Regular reporting on device use to support the discharge of officer’s duties and to ensure that employees are complying with agreed risk mitigation processes
  • • 
    Free advice to ensure that your colleagues get into the habit of staying safe

It’s not too late, but you need to act now to ensure you’re ready. To get your obligation-free consultation ring now, order before Christmas and implement during January/February and receive a “not to be repeated” 10% discount off our standard pricing.
