What is a lone worker, and what are some examples of lone worker jobs?
A Lone Worker is an individual who performs tasks or operates in a working environment without direct or close supervision or interaction with other employees. It might be easy to assume that because even though there might be others working around each other that they are not Lone Workers, in reality, workers who work apart from each other can be very much alone and in need of a “buddy system ” to alert one another of distress.
These workers are found in various occupations such as warehouse workers, laboratories, security guards, field service technicians, maintenance workers, construction workers, delivery drivers, healthcare workers, agriculture and farm workers, real estate agents, retail workers, and research scientists. Workers who work alone or in isolated settings, requiring appropriate safety measures and tools like Grace Connected Safety™ to ensure their well-being and provide prompt assistance in case of emergencies.
What are the risks associated with lone worker jobs, and how can they be mitigated?
Lone worker jobs come with inherent risks due to the lack of immediate supervision or support. These risks include accidents, injuries, medical emergencies, physical assaults, and environmental hazards. Grace Connected Safety™ helps mitigate these risks by providing real-time monitoring and communication capabilities. Through features such as audible, visual, and vibrating alerts, lone workers can receive immediate assistance in case of emergencies or distress.

After a fall, the response time is critical for a worker hanging for a prolonged period of time placing them at serious risk of Suspension Trauma, defined as the loss of consciousness when hanging with limited movement. This danger is life threatening when response is beyond a critical time window of several minutes.
Personal fall arrest and fall restraint systems .. fall arrest devices .. active fall arrest .. safety harnesses and lanyards are just a few of the key words found around those who work at heights. The best fall protection plan will provide a user the means to self-rescue but what happens when a user is unable to self-rescue? What happens after a fall? Studies show that workers left hanging are at risk of suspension trauma, a deadly condition that can develop in a within less than 20 minutes.
The Grace WorkForce® product line provides reliable fall suspension trauma alerting and protection devices for a variety of industries including utilities, construction, arborist, scaffold workers and windfarms.

WorkForce® transmits this wireless emergency signal that is received by others facilitating a “prompt rescue”.
Workforce® Fall Detection and Suspension Trauma Prevention Systems are designed to help those who can’t help themselves and unable to self-rescue. WorkForce® detects a fall and immediately notifies others initiating a prompt rescue.
WorkForce® goes beyond the minimum requirements of fall protection. After a fall, Workforce® is the answer to what happens next.
