When Guardian Angel were awarded the Worksafe NZ lone worker contract 4 years ago, the lone worker market looked quite different. There were not as many suppliers (in fact we were kind of it!) and there were a lot less products on the market, and thus less confusion.
Issues around PCBUs – a person conducting a business or undertaking – under incoming new health and safety legislation could prove tricky for organisations employing lone workers, says Guardian Angel Security MD Petra Hakansson.
With so many Lone Worker Solutions on the market today, it’s hard to know what’s best for your business. Not all solutions are made equal and at Guardian Angel we can guide you with impartial, evidence based advice to make sure you get the right fit for your lone workers.
This question was asked by one of our lone workers following our last newsletter. It’s a fair question. His expectation was that we call 111, talk to the operator and the Police may or may not attend. The reality is quite different.
