DoorJammer For Home Visit Staff Welfare
What does ‘safety at work’ mean to you? Your answer will of course depend on your profession and for many, our day to day personal safety at work isn’t something we think about too much. However, if your job requires you carrying out home visits, your own safety is an extremely important consideration. Having the original DoorJammer safety device with you can give you peace of mind and will provide the security you may need if a situation turns nasty.
There are some quite astounding figures relating to verbal abuse, harassment and physical assaults on staff in welfare roles. In an online survey of social workers by Community Care, 85% said they had encountered some form of abuse during home visits from either the client or their relative. The same survey found that 9 out of 10 social workers felt personally at risk at least some of the time while at work.
DoorJammer - Don't compromise on safety
It is not only social workers who put themselves at risk in this way, by entering the homes of others as part of their job. Child protection officers, RSPCA officers, probation officers, nurses and care workers, all of whom have a primary role of helping others, can sometimes find their own personal safety is threatened. Your safety at work can be compromised more if your job involves home visits and being prepared is especially important if you work alone.
Planning for the worst case scenario can make all the difference to the outcome of a potentially violent situation. The original DoorJammer is a reliable portable security device, small enough to keep in your bag with all your other work supplies when you go on home visits. You may feel especially vulnerable when entering someone’s home alone, so having DoorJammer with you on home visits will provide reassurance. With DoorJammer you know that you can create a safe haven in any room if a potentially violent situation occurs and you’re unable to safely exit the house.
How does DoorJammer work?
DoorJammer is extremely quick and easy to use in any situation. It can be fitted under virtually any inward swinging door, needing only a 3mm space. So, if you need to create a safe place while you wait for help, insert the flat part of DoorJammer under the door below the handle and turn the screw clockwise by hand until the foot is firmly against the floor.
The patented design of DoorJammer redirects force from outside the door downwards and upwards, wedging DoorJammer firmly into the ground and the surrounding wall. So if any further force is applied to the door by an aggressor, DoorJammer will just work harder and keep getting stronger.
When help arrives DoorJammer is just as easy to remove by pulling the handle upward, quickly lifting the device away.
