Why Use Employee Monitoring for Lone Worker Safety?

US employee safety statistics are formidable, with lone worker safety even more disturbing. Almost 4500 workers were killed on the job in 2013.  Nearly 83 lives lost each week, averaging 12 deaths each day of the year according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).  Over the last 15 years, workplace violence has risen to become one of the top four causes of occupational fatalities on the job in the United States. Additionally, nonfatal worksite injuries and illnesses rounded out at 3 million in 2012 as reported by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In light of these and other equally startling statistics, business leaders and those at management level are becoming increasingly aware of the need to monitor employees for safety as many of these tragic incidences could be prevented if only the proper precautions were taken.  Employees at risk include employees who work inside brick and mortar facilities, employees who regularly interact face-to-face with strangers and especially those who work alone and in high-risk environments.

What if you were presented the means to monitor your employees for safety and protect your company’s reputation and bottom line with one powerful and easy-to-implement solution?

You can safely monitor your work staff’s safety, protect your business reputation, and bolster your bottom line with SoloProtect lone worker safety devices.

Consider these scenarios: At the job site, a lone worker runs into trouble, or a few employees are working in the field and one is injured.  A verbal assault may swiftly escalate into the threat of physical assault for one of your lone workers or outside agents. Would you know about the situation? When would you know about the situation? When could your worker expect assistance? Are you protecting your employees?

In each of these scenarios, when using SoloProtect, your employee has the immediate ability to call for help, and discreetly. Your worker is able to alert someone easily than using a cell phone. Your worker can access an immediate & discreet response from Emergency responders in a dedicated call center, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  911 personnel will be sent to the GPS-pinpointed scene if needed. The communication is one-way, remaining discreet, so that your worker is heard but no one speaks to alert the aggressor. The dispatch center has help on the way with the aggressor being none the wiser.employee monitoring for safety
