Trends in Lone Worker Safety

Issues and strategies in protecting individuals working alone, as well as some results from an upcoming survey on lone worker safety.

The fundamental challenge of lone worker safety is ever-present: safety managers must ensure effective monitoring and protection of individuals who work alone, often in remote or high-risk environments. But how they carry that out is an evolving effort that hinges on advancements in technology, industry practices and standards.

Lester Tiro of SafetyLine Lone Worker joins the podcast to talk about various issues and challenges of lone worker safety, as well as strategies and tools for enhancing lone worker safety. Additionally, Tiro shares a sneak peek of some findings uncovered in a forthcoming study that SafetyLine Lone Worker will release later this year.
