Reducing stress for operatives
Health and safety should also cover mental health as much as anything else.
Highway Assurance have implemented a fight-or-flight system, which system outlined exactly what to do in the event of an accident to alleviate the responsibility and stress for operatives. They had this procedure on paper originally, but due to the nature of working on the road, it wasn’t always practical to have it to hand.
Now it’s stored on the operative’s device and easily accessible in the time of need.The system also has a lone worker safety feature built in, something Highway Assurance weren’t able to provide prior to using MyMobileWorkers, which allows management to set an interval for how often the worker needs to check in and automatically sends a notification when a job has taken longer than expected. There is also a panic button when workers are in need.
This gives operatives peace of mind that should anything happen, management are alerted straight away, knowing exactly where they are.
