Lone Worker Safety for Office and Retail Staff
Lone working as an office or retail employee can be a stressful role full of potentially high-risk situations. Staff working in retail are frequently exposed to verbal abuse, violence, intimidation and much more. Those working in offices can have medical emergencies without others knowing, be alone with clients or harassed by colleagues.
One way of improving the safety of these employees is to use a lone worker safety system. People working on their own require a solution that ensures they have round the clock safety monitoring, automated check-ins and computer-based help/panic buttons in case of emergency.
Enable your office and retail staff to call for immediate assistance with the desktop app help button. Workers use the on-screen button or help button on the taskbar to alert others to an emergency situation.
High Risk Check In
Office and retail employees can adjust the time of their check-ins if they deem a situation to be higher risk. If there is no response to the new check-in notification, monitors will be alerted to investigate.
Missed Check In
Make sure your employees are protected by having automated check ins. This allows staff to feel safer as they know someone will be contacted and help sent if they miss their check in and do not respond.
