Nurses, lab workers, orderlies and porters—as your staff works to save lives, who is looking out for them when they work alone?
STATE OF THE INDUSTRY
Crimes committed against healthcare workers are on the rise. Dangerous situations are prevalent across all verticals of this industry, and these employees who often work alone, never know what’s in store for them when they come face-to-face with patients.
In 2011, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) in the United States reports hospitals recorded 253,700 work-related injuries and illnesses. OSHA also states between 2003 and 2011, fatalities averaged 24 per year. Additionally, for 2013, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in the United States reported an increase of up to 100 healthcare and social assistance worker-related fatalities.
Thousands of incidents occur annually that put Healthcare workers in danger—sometimes they are put on disability while some incidents may be fatal.
YOUR SAFETY POLICY
Your team works against the clock in high-risk, high-stress scenarios in hospitals, clinics, research labs and other medical centers. From in-office administrators to paramedics on the road, medical professionals never know when they will encounter a dangerous situation.
While safety procedures are already in place for your lone workers, are they the most efficient processes for when a safety incident occurs?
A BETTER WAY TO RESPOND
To make a difference, no time can be wasted in managing your emergency response.
Many organizations still use antiquated check-in procedures to ensure the ongoing safety of employees. This approach has proven it is not capable of responding fast enough, in real-time to make a difference for your lone workers.

In Healthcare applications where Blackline’s technology is used, responders can be directed in real-time not only to a precise outdoor location, but the exact floor and room inside your hospital or medical center a lone worker is located if indoors.
