We’re delighted to be part of the Lone Worker Safety Expo Conference at The King’s Fund in central London tomorrow, 15 October. We’re always happy to demonstrate Safe Hub, our proprietary lone worker safety system, at events such as these. And it’s a fantastic forum to have conversations about lone worker safety with dedicated professionals who are making a positive difference to their colleagues’ daily working lives.
This year’s programme includes presentations from professionals across a range of fields focusing on understanding the risks to lone workers. We’re particularly looking forward to hearing some personal lived experience of managing lone workers’ wellbeing. And the legal case study will be a timely reminder of the importance of meeting legal obligations towards lone workers.
Focus on sexual harassment in the workplace
In the run-up to the event, our Chief Executive George Stavrinidis wrote an article about sexual harassment in the workplace. It’s been shared on the Lone Worker Safety Expo website here http://www.loneworkersafetyexpo.com/keeping-sexual-harassment-out-of-the-workplace/
Since the #MeToo movement began two years ago, many organisations have found themselves wanting when it comes to dealing with sexual harassment. And it’s a particular problem for lone workers, who may suffer inappropriate comments or even physical assault. Surveys consistently show that sexual harassment affects workers regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation. But with Safe Hub on their side, lone workers can get emergency and virtual buddy help to deal with any problems they may face.
Come along and find out more about Safe Hub
We’ll be demonstrating Safe Hub, our proprietary lone worker safety platform that provides a range of safety features. With emergency, virtual buddy, reactive, proactive, virtual barrier and broadcast messaging functions, we help lone workers in trouble – and stop them getting into trouble in the first place. Safe Hub works in a variety of formats, from smartphone apps and standard mobile text messaging through to dedicated devices. We have wearable devices for frontline staff where discretion is of paramount concern. We have satellite devices for when mobile phone signal is weak or non-existent. And we even have intrinsically safe devices for hazardous environments.
So if you’re coming along to the Lone Worker Safety Expo tomorrow, please do make sure to pop by to meet Henry and Georgia and find out how we can deploy Safe Hub in your organisation to keep lone workers safe in their everyday working lives.
