In 2005, Suzy Lamplugh Trust and Look Out Call conducted a national survey on lone workers which produced the following results:
- 81% of those surveyed were concerned about violence and aggression in the work place
- 52% of males had experienced abuse compared to 40% of females
- 10% had experienced pushing/kicking/punching incidents
Full details of the 2005 survey can be found here (pdf version).
A great deal has happened since then with regard to lone worker safety and Suzy Lamplugh Trust, again in conjunction with Look Out Call would like to carry out another survey to find out if things have improved/worsened and to see if the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter Act in particular is having any significant impact on lone worker safety.
