London Lone Worker Expo 2018
Here’s some of the topics that will be covered:
Legal responsibilities and the implication of not addressing these
Ways to address mental health and wellbeing concerns for lone workers
Latest thinking on the use of technology and training solutions
Questions to ask when procuring a lone worker system and the impact of BS84 84
The increase in Violence and Aggression towards lone workers and practical tools to reduce and manage the risk
The challenges of managing lone working in the community and in high pressure situations
Identifying and implementing effective control measures for the Health and Safety risks to lone workers
Contingency planning and practical advice for major incidents and terrorist attacks when travelling in the UK and abroad
We’re hoping Petra doesn’t need to draw on what she learns in regards to the last topic!!!!
While we keep our finger on the pulse in regards to emerging technology globally, we think there will be some amazing learning opportunities in areas such as processes and procedures with how the solutions are used, technology integrations and how the response is managed.
If you have questions or would like any sort of research done on how Lone Workers are managed globally, please feel free to fire her through an email prior to 25th September.
Of course we’d like to add a bullet point to this list of “what you can do” which would read; “Contact Guardian Angels” but this is a pretty useful link if you need to just “sum up” the risks and figure out what to do: https://www.employment.govt.nz/starting-employment/rights-and-responsibilities/protecting-employees-who-work-alone/
