Employers of lone workers have a legal duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of their employees.
For lone workers, this includes regular contact, monitoring, location tracking at pre-agreed intervals and a reliable system to ensure the employee has returned to base once they have completed their task.
The combination of increased numbers of lone workers (over 6 million in the UK) and more robust legislation around duty of care means that organisations are under pressure to ensure that their teams are safe and secure as they work.
IoT can play an important part in meeting these challenges, whilst improving productivity and maintaining health and safety compliance. Mobile devices and sensors connected to a cloud platform can monitor and track the lone workers (in and outdoors), auto-alerts can then be set up for inactivity, non-appearance, being off site, and trips or falls.
The users can summon assistance with a panic button and can easily communicate back and forth to the control room via their device. The cloud platform can provide monitoring with live reporting and analytics.
