It is often assumed that an employee is safe while working from home but statistically, accidents are more commonplace in the home than in the office. Falling objects, trips and falls are all more likely to occur at home.
The Health & Safety Authority states : "An employer has the same responsibility for the safety and health of employees who work from home as for any other employees. The employer should accept liability for accident or injury of a homeworker as for any other employee."
Home Workers can be isolated and alone for much of the day but knowing that help is only a click away gives piece of mind.
We've tailored our Atlas SOS app for iPhone and Android to cater for this new workplace which now represents up to 80% of previously office based workers. We've added features to check Home Workers are ok and if not, raise an alarm directly with co-workers, managers, team leads, friends, family or neighbours.
Added to our range of devices is Atlas SOS-WiFi which designed for users who are working from home. No SIM card or phone required and only needs WiFi. This tiny device can be configured to check the Home Worker is ok and automatically raise an alarm if not. It also includes a dedicated SOS button and optional true Man Down detection.
