Many lone-worker occupations like sales staff, guards, cleaners and other service people working in isolation or alone late at night work indoors. When a lone worker inside the building needs help, the information about his or her accurate location is not always available.

TWIG personal safety alarms can determine the accurate location from nearby installed TWIG beacons when a GPS signal is not available or unreliable.

Lone working risks in retail service

Slips, trips & falls

Stairs, uneven and wet floors as well as objects left on the floor can cause falls or slipping.

Violence

Isolated employees are put at greater risk and are more vulnerable to violence when handling cash and high value goods.

Threats and abuse

Lone-working service people come face to face with furious, difficult or unsatisfied customers. An escalating customer service situation puts the lone workers at risk of verbal abuse and threat.
