How to Manage Lone Worker Safety
The 2008 murder of realtor Lindsay Buziak while showing a property in Victoria, BC, Canada is a disturbing example of why you need to manage the safety of your lone workers. There are many sales industry professionals who may be at risk when working alone; realtors showing homes, car salespeople taking customers for a test drive, and all sorts of outside sales workers who travel to visit clients and prospects. All of whom work alone or in isolation without reliable safety systems supporting them.
Sending your team out on sales calls without a lone worker safety device is just not acceptable anymore, not when there are affordable safety solutions available at ever decreasing prices.
