PRESS RELEASE: 'Lone Worker Safety' - NSCA Future of Work Conference

PRESS RELEASE: “Lone Worker Safety” – NSCA Future of Work Conference

A crowd of safety professionals and management from across the country attended the NSCA Future of Work Conference.

We were asked to present at the conference. So I spoke about “Lone Worker Safety”. To do this, I drew on my more than 20 years’ experience helping staff to get home safe each and every day.

The key areas of discussion in my presentation were:

  • The risks for organisations of not doing what is deemed ‘reasonably practicable’ to manage the foreseeable risk of harm to their lone and isolated workers.
  • How the next generation of lone worker safety solutions can deliver measurable and scalable benefits for all stakeholders.
  • What key features to look for in a lone worker safety solution and why. This included duress alarms, man down alarms, welfare checks, check ins and journey monitoring.
  • Common roadblocks when implementing new technology for a lone worker safety system such as staff who struggle with technology, general resistance to change and implementation fatigue.

By the end of the talk, the audience was left with a far greater appreciation of the challenges and solutions to managing the personal safety of their lone and isolated staff. And they were also given a better understanding of how next generation technology can play a pivotal role in delivering quality services.
