Lone working represents a significant financial risk to the business employing personnel working alone. Isolated workers are still owed a duty of care (morally and legally) by their employer. Employers that don’t make proper provision for staff by use of a portable lone worker safety system are at risk of lower productivity, higher stress levels and staff churn costs, private litigation and legislative costs if they are found to be breaching the Work Health and Safety Bill.

Penalties listed in the Bill state up to AUD 10,000 fines for individuals and AUD 50,000 fines for a body corporate may be imposed if found guilty of breaching the legislation.

A person is “alone” at work when they are on their own; when they cannot be seen or heard by another person; and when they cannot expect a visit from another worker.

What is a Portable Duress Alarm?

A GPS duress alarm is a form of personal safety device that employs GPS technology to assist people in distress in sending out an emergency signal to alert authorities or selected contacts of their position and predicament. The gadget, which may be worn as a bracelet, necklace, or carried in a pocket, is intended to be activated quietly in an emergency.

When activated, the device transmits a distress signal telling a monitoring station or certain contacts of the person’s position and situation. Thanks to GPS technology, rescuers can find the individual in need right away and offer aid as needed.

Personal duress alarm systems are frequently worn by isolated workers in high-risk jobs, such as healthcare professionals, security staff, and solitary workers, as well as those who may be vulnerable to attack, kidnapping, or other types of violent crimes.
