Active Guard – Guard Tour
You can view more information on how the ActiveGuard Patrol system works in this PDF File Extracts from the Health & Safety Executive leafletControlling the risks of solitary work. Although lone workers cannot be subject to constant supervision, it is still an employer’s duty to ensure their health and safety at work. Lone workers should not be at more risk than other employees and face particular problems. Some of the issues which need special attention when planning safe working arrangements are;
- Does the workplace present a special risk to the lone worker? Is there a risk of violence?
- Procedures need to be put in place to monitor lone workers to see they remain safe. These may include:
Supervisors periodically visiting and observing people working alone;
- Regular contact between the lone worker and supervision using either a telephone or radio;
- Automatic warning devices which operate if specific signals are not received periodically from the lone worker, e.g. systems for security staff;
- Other devices designed to raise the alarm in the event of an emergency and which are operated manually or automatically by the absence of activity;
- Checks that a lone worker has returned to their base or home on completion of a task.
The Active Guard System covers 4 out 5 of the above points laid out in the Health & Safety Executive leaflet, it is therefore of paramount importance to consider the system for a lone worker, particularly when many security guard duties carry a risk of violence.
