Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement that covers you and your business for compensation costs from employee claims. In 2019-2020 there were 79 027 successful claims in the UK as NimbleFins reports.
In the security world, liabilities can be more frequent as guards are predisposed to an increased safety risk due to lone working, compared to other industries.
In order to reduce some of the risks associated with lone working, deal with incidents quicker and possibly reduce the cost of insurance you can acquire a lone working protection solution that helps you monitor your guards remotely.
In the event of an emergency, it is a good idea to have a panic button or device that your lone worker can use or to have set up an alarm when patrols are missed.
Additionally, it is necessary to demonstrate sensibility to risk by offering adequate training & conducting regular risk assessments.
