Lone Worker Protection
A lone worker is anyone who essentially is working on their own and away from home
or office. Lone workers include:
– Self employed persons
– Persons working away from their office base such as sales executives
– After hours personnel such as cleaners
– Health workers such as doctors and nurses
– Persons working in dangerous environments such as mining and gas
– Persons working with mental health patients
Employers need to ensure the safety and protection of lone workers in the same
manner as they would for other employees.
Telecare (per Wikipedia) is the term for offering remote care of elderly and physically less able people, providing the care and reassurance needed to allow them to remain living in their own
homes. The use of sensors may be part of a package which can provide support for
people with illnesses such as dementia, or people at risk of falling. Most telecare
mitigates harm by reacting to untoward events and raising a help response quickly.
Some telecare, such as safety confirmation and lifestyle monitoring have a preventive
function in that a deterioration in the telecare user’s wellbeing can be spotted at an early stage.
