StaySafe Business is a GPS tracker app that provides personal protection for lone working employees, tracking locations in real-time enabling lone workers to check-in safely after working.
Staysafe Business has now become the latest high profile exhibitor to join this year’s LONE WORKER SAFETY 2014 Expo, the only event specifically designed for lone workers and has been growing in popularity since its launch five years ago.
The event features conference speakers who are acknowledged experts in their chosen fields along with a list of exhibitors which includes firms specialising in lone worker security technology and devices, as well as personal protection training providers and other types of risk management and personal safety firms.
Jeff Carroll, Operations Director of Safe Apps Ltd, the company behind StaySafe Business, is very clear on why his firm has joined this year’s LONE WORKER SAFETY 2014 Expo: “We believe that this event is sharing our key objective, which is to protect professionals who work alone and hence are more vulnerable. This event and our technology will help reduce the risk of workplace violence and its related injuries.”
The event has also become a useful platform for professionals to exchange information, recommendations and codes of practice in reference to all aspects of lone worker protection.
Why is the issue of lone worker protection so important?
Robert Kaiser, Organiser and Chair of this annual event states: “According to several studies and research projects a high percentage of workers are concerned about facing verbal aggression, hostility or physical conflict.” “Everyone responsible for lone worker protection must understand all legal responsibilities to their workforce.”
“The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 and other laws do not make it illegal for employees to work alone, but they do place a responsibility on the employer to ensure that it is safe for them to do so.”
“Employers are responsible not just for their own employees but also for others who are affected by their work activities such as self-employed individuals and contractors.”
“The speaker of this year’s event will all aim to highlight what can and what should be done to improve the personal safety of those working alone and subsequently reduce the risk of workplace violence.”
The knowledge provided by all speakers and the carefully selected products highlighted by all exhibitors can make a real difference in the life of a lone worker.
It can make the difference of coming home safely after a hard day at work or not coming home at all. Further details of this event can be obtained on the event’s website http://www.loneworkersafetyexpo.com/ or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
