Estate Agents - Protect Your Lone Workers

Nearly one in three Estate Agents have been the victim of abuse whilst on viewings. Protect them wherever… whenever with Skyguard.

Estate Agent Lone WorkerA recent survey carried out across 1,000 UK Estate Agents found that over half had no safety procedures in place for staff that carries out viewings or valuations on their own.

Yet critically, agency staff say they don’t always feel safe when out on their own. The findings of the survey, conducted over a two year period include:

  • 30% of the Estate Agents questioned had been the victims of verbal abuse
  • Almost a quarter felt their safety was being compromised
  • 53% didn’t have a lone worker policy
  • 16% had been intimidated
  • More than one in ten had been threatened while conducting viewings

As an employer, you have a legal and moral Duty of Care to your employees to protect them from unnecessary risk. If one of your employees suffers harm at work as a consequence of doing their job, you could end up in court. And if it can be proven that the systems you employ aren’t up to the job of protecting your lone working employees, you may be in breach of numerous pieces of Health and Safety legislation. This could have disastrous consequences.

Skyguard is the ideal solution. Our MySOS – Europe’s smallest personal alarm with GPS is extremely easy to use and can raise the alarm at just one touch of the emergency button. As soon as the alarm is raised, we’ll know who you are, where you are and any personal details including medical conditions. We will listen to what’s happening your end, and if it’s safe to do so, talk to you to advise and reassure you. If it’s not safe to talk, you don’t need to say a word… we’ll send assistance right away, if necessary. We also record what’s happening remotely – vital should the incident go to litigation.
