Protect your staff with our free guide to lone working in local authorities
According to WorkSafe New Zealand:
- There are an estimated 750-900 work-related health deaths a year.
- There are an estimated 5,000-6,000 hospitalisations each year due to work-related ill-health.
Lone working has become commonplace for many working for local authorities. Employees in these industries regularly carry out public-facing roles, home visits or client meetings alone and away from the office. While working alone is usually safe, lone working brings with it additional risk, as any danger faced is faced alone.
That’s why we have produced a guide with everything you need to know about protecting lone workers in these sectors.
The guide covers:
- The risks your employees face
- Advice for keeping your teams safe during the pandemic
- A step by step guide to carrying out a risk assessment
- Practical advice on developing a lone worker policy
- The latest technology designed to protect and monitor employees
