As a business owner you have a responsibility to manage the risks related with your lone workers. So, what measures you have taken till now to support safety of your staff when they attend a property?
Have you provided them mobile phones? Would it be possible for your worker to call for help? What if they meet with an accident and are unable to contact anyone for help?
Do your lone workers working alone?
So what else can you do?
Investing in lone worker protection system made by ZenduIT people will provide your real estate agents protection 24/7 because they are connected directly with your control room.
What happens when a worker push the button:
* An alarm is raised
* Your real estate agent’s GPS coordinates are determined
* The appropriate action is taken by the control room, eg placing an emergency call on your agent’s behalf; and
* The situation continues to be monitored and the audio is recorded till the threat has been handled
This system is very simple to use and very user friendly. Your worker can wear as a regular ID card holder so that if any accident occurs he triggers the alarm thus preventing further aggravation of the situation. If users feel they may be entering a hazardous situation, but do not require immediate assistance, they can activate an amber alert button, which transmits their GPS coordinates to a 24/7 manned control center.
There are a number of companies and solutions that design tools and software for lone worker protection and safety. Personal alarms can provide lone workers with the backup and peace of mind that they need in order to focus on their work instead of thinking about the potential problems. They enable anyone who works alone to summon help rapidly in the event of an incident that threatens their wellbeing.
Using personal safety alarms or mobile phone software downloads and apps, lone workers can communicate with an alarm receiving centre 24 hours a day. These pocket-sized devices often feature one or two-way voice communications, memo function and ‘Man Down’ – a fall detector that automatically raises an alarm in the event of a trip, slip or fall.
With the introduction and addition of GPD technology, employers can track their staff by logging in to a secure online account and viewing the location on a map. In the unfortunate event of an emergency, the position of the device is instantly relayed to the alarm receiving centre and the controllers can guide the appropriate emergency services to the exact location with minimal fuss.
Providing the personal safety alarms to the lone workers also help fulfil employer’s Duty of Care and protect organizations from potentially disastrous prosecution. This can limit or avoid the huge cost of loss of, or damage to physical business assets by enabling employees to summon fast, effective backup in the event of an incident. What’s more, these solutions are proven to help increase the morale and staff confidence knowing that if they need any help, there are highly trained professionals that are on call at all the times to help them in any kind of emergency.
