Using VideoBadges to safeguard operatives

Sites should aim to ensure the highest levels of safety performance and protect the workforce and community as much as possible.

Risk assessments of the environment and equipment should take place to identify any hazards posed to operatives.

If potential risks have been identified in their work environment, the appropriate measures should be implemented to safeguard their wellbeing.

Below is an example of how one site responded to potential threats posed to operatives:

  • Following some potentially dangerous incidents, operatives working in areas where they might be endangered or threatened by the public, have been issued with VideoBadges, (which are already in use by parking attendants);
  • VideoBadges incorporate the ID badge with a video camera, which can record 8 hours of continuous audio and video of evidential quality, to be used if needed.
