An recent article outlined how those working alone at night in Janitorial roles can be targets for sexual assault, yet there have been no cases brought by OSHA.
In the State of California regulators are now developing new rules and guidelines but it’s unclear if this will provide direct remedy in situations such as these.
GuardianMPS can assist organizations to form a robust stance on protecting night workers, even in areas where costs have been prohibitive by:
Offering workers the ability to check in/out of assignments
and where available provide GPS location of their whereabouts.
Offering organizations an end to end monitored panic system
on existing or worker-owned cellphones/smartphones
– eliminating cost barriers for budget conscious departments.
Providing full recording of any incidents to allow appropriate response either from another team member or emergency services.
Post attacks, our detailed records of worker rosters, audio data from checking in and escalated panic incidents (and much much more) can offer concerned and affected companies a means to comprehensively assist the Police and Judicial systems to enforce the law.
