What is Lone Worker Protection?

24th February 2020

Working remote or alone is a daily occurrence for over 6 million people in the UK alone, including social workers, bailiffs, caretakers, service engineers, builders and security officers.

With these roles there are many risks associated with lone working such as a sudden illness or accident, violence, threats or abuse, theft or intruders and driving related incidents. As an employer, you have a legal obligation to carefully consider the health and safety risks of your lone working staff members.

Where your people are, is important to their safety. You can reduce the risk for lone workers in the field with our Lone Worker Protection application MobileLWP. This includes a market leading app which can be installed on to your team’s mobile devices and enables you to constantly monitor the welfare of your team with safety features such as Routine Welfare Checks (RWC) and SOS Panic Alerts.

Alongside the app, our NFC (Near Field Communications) bolt on allows your team members that are working remotely to swipe in and out of designated locations which have been NFC tagged. Meaning you have peace of mind knowing that the lone worker has arrived and left, and how long they spent at a specific location.

With over 30 years of experience, Challenger are well equipped to help you support your lone workers with all-important tracking and protection.
