A lone worker safety consultant can help you identify and prepare for potential safety risks in the field. They are trained to implement workplace safety procedures that are designed to keep your workers safe and keep your job site compliant with regulations.
How will a lone work safety consultant help keep my workers safe?
Lone worker safety consultants are experts at understanding and assessing the risks that lone workers face. Here’s how they do it:

- Education — Once workplace hazards have been identified, your lone work safety consultant can educate your workers on avoiding hazards. They should be trained on what areas they should or should not go without proper safety training or certification.
- Communication — Your lone work safety consultant will help you gain input from your workers about how they feel about the safety of their work site. Addressing their concerns not only keeps them safe but also builds a better working relationship.
- Utilizing technology — With the use of communication devices, your lone workers need not feel so alone anymore. A consultant can educate you on the use of mobile devices that can allow your workers to check in with you. Many devices can also alert you to accidents on the job.
