Lone Worker Safety and Situational Awareness Training

  • Staff working in the field face a different set of personal safety challenges than do those working within the secure perimeter of your offices and facilities.
  • By the nature of their job descriptions, lone workers travel between and spend time at disparate locations.  These may include visits to unfamiliar areas that may place them in isolated environments. Maintaining situational awareness is key.
  • Have you  implemented sound strategy to make all phases of their workday safer? Have you provided them with action plans to deal with any number of potential threats or situations relative to their specific job descriptions?
  • Do you know where your employees are at any time during their work day and do you have a communication plan / policy in place?
