HOME WORKERS ARE LONE WORKERS
Fast help if they need it
STAYING SAFE AT HOME
It’s the over-riding current health and safety issue: how to delay the spread of coronavirus and limit the effects of Covid-19. Working from home, where possible, presents an opportunity to stay safe and help to prevent the spread of infection, so others remain safe too. But how do you ensure your newly at-home-workers are safe in a crisis?
While this activity is typically low risk, any person working without supervision or out of eyesight or earshot of colleagues is deemed to be 'lone working'. Which means appropriate measures should be taken to ensure safety, wellbeing and compliance with legislation as you would with any other lone worker, as working from home becomes the new normal for many.
Safe Hub's App: a flexible and user-friendly solution
The Safe Hub App will give you that confidence. The App provides employers with a useful system to protect lone workers, providing everything from emergency help to clear messaging.
Any lone workers at home using the smartphone version of the app can have access to all Safe Hub's safety features. And we have versions of the app with functionality for standard mobile phones, laptops and desktops too.
