Lone worker protection

The lone worker protection product company Peoplesafe and Worthwhile Training have teamed up on safety training.

The two businesses will co-deliver 12 newly developed courses, ranging from lone worker device training to immersive drama-based workshops focussed on managing conflict and aggression.

Ian Johannessen, Peoplesafe’s managing director, says: “Working with Worthwhile Training is a real coup for us. Their team share our passion for delivering pragmatic, workable solutions, and their ability to apply real-word knowledge and experience will add great value for our clients.”

The new training emphasises behavioural safety and culture change – key issues for organisations looking to better protect their lone workers, the two say. Ian Johannessen adds: “Providing lone workers with a safety solution is one thing, but ensuring they are used can be quite another. Many of our new courses focus on long-term engagement and will go a long way to ensure that new safety systems are embraced – maximising the return on investment.”

This culture-first approach is shared by Worthwhile Training, established in 1999. Nicole Vazquez, pictured, director at Worthwhile, said: “There is a real need for organisations to invest in lone worker training, regardless of whether or not they use personal safety devices. It’s not just lone workers on the frontline who need training – educating managers benefits the whole team too. Our workshops support this need, and together with Peoplesafe, we’re taking a holistic and comprehensive approach to lone worker safety.”
