Lone Worker Policy: Among all the very necessary effort we put into our business, it is sensible to also spend a little time on your safety in your working life.
Lone working is defined by the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) as “those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision”. It includes working outside of normal office hours, working from home, working in other people’s homes and those who travel as part of their job. As a therapist you are likely to be lone working much of your working day.
- Glo doesn’t knowingly take bookings for male only groups / male individuals where there is a lone female therapist working.
- If you are working on a booking alone, please ensure that you contact the client 24 hours before your booking to introduce yourself and if you have any concerns that the individual is misrepresenting information, please contact Glo asap – 020 70960385 / email@example.com.
- Consider setting up a system of phoning or texting a friend/colleague to check-in and out at the beginning and end of sessions with new clients. Let them know when you should be returning, along with the location of where work will be undertaken
- If at all possible, make sure someone else is in the building, especially for first appointments with a new client.
- Carry a personal alarm and/or mobile phone and consider using a personal safety app. https://www.getbsafe.com/
- Be clear about and maintain professional boundaries – please refer to Glo’s code of conduct and T&C’s for more info.
- Be careful with disclosing information about you - for example: don’t have personal photos on display; don’t tell them about regular activities or places you visit.
Glo is a business operated by therapists like you. We take reasonable caution to ensure that bookings are safe for Glo therapists. It is also important for Glo therapists to take reasonable care of their own personal safety, including not putting themselves into a situation which could compromise their safety.
