Lone workers need to have a risk assessment carried out to allow companies to take steps to avoid or control risks, this will help you comply with your legal duty under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSW Act) and the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations (MHSW) 1999.
Companies must identify the relevant hazards and take the appropriate control measures. The Lone worker unit from NIBC helps you mitigate risk for your staff in “dangerous and duress situations” and helps you comply with the Health & Safety at Work Act.
This solution provides workers with two way communication, allows you access to GPS tracking on NIBC’s tracking platform. The unit is small enough to fit into a pocket and still give an accurate GPS position. It is powerful enough to provide a GPS fix in one story buildings and can operate in cars and lorries underneath the dashboard with no external antenna needed.
For Lone workers away from the office or for small businesses where members of staff are on site, the Lone worker unit is the perfect solution to give you and your employees piece of mind and assurance that if needed they can gain help.
