This year's LONE WORKER SAFETY 2013 Conference & Exhibition is taking place on Tuesday 26th November 2013 at London's great Olympia Conference Centre... and it is once again all about improving the security of lone workers.
We are all too familiar with news stories highlighting the fact that professionals working for local authorities, parking enforcement agencies, housing associations, social and health care services, privately owned security firms, utility providers, insurance firms or ambulance authorities and public transport firms have been subjected to either extreme verbal abuse or physical violence.
Lone worker security and the law
This means that employers have to take their legal duty to offer a reasonable level of security to their employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 very serious.
When sending their lone workers out into this increasingly hostile environment, health & safety professionals responsible for the security of lone workers must now be very sure the security of their workforce has been given plenty of consideration, and everything appropriate is done to ensure their personal safety.
More and more organisations are adopting lone worker policies and lone worker security training, backed up in some cases by new lone worker security devices to raise alarm and record as much evidence of the hostile situation they are facing.
So what are the key elements that can help you to effectively improve lone worker security?
The answers will be made available to you in this year's LONE WORKER SAFETY 2013 Conference & Exhibition, and we would very much like to see you at our event. Why?Because we genuinely believe that you WILL take 'home' valuable information and develop a better understanding of this so very important subject of today's society.
