    heyy,
    Till the time the female employees are in the office campus they are quite safe as there are everyone around, still for the security there should be some security guards in office premises. The problem of security occurs during the travel hours and in the office cabs. There should be a security guard in each of the office cabs and the last stop of every route should not be appointed to a female employee. Besides that each cab should be tracked while en route and all the female employees should have the important information saved in their cell phones like the cab taxi number, cell phone number of office people and security guards etc.

    Hi friend
    What you have to do is that arrange a bus or a mini bus whose work is to pick or drop all the females to their houses. But before start this makes sure you have to choose only those drivers who do not belong to any of the criminal record. Collect all the information of each of the driver when you arrange the vehicle and drivers. File a application to provide a fund for this project. Take the number of all the drivers. And then when the fund is clear start working on it because now a days the crime cases are increase in metro cities so it’s your responsibility to take care of your female workers.
    Thanking I hope you like my idea……..

    Hello,

    Yes, feamle safety is paramount in BPO industry. Firstly you should maintian a log book
    containing the photo id, name and address of the cab drivers. There should law prohibiting
    the drivers not to consume alcohol while on duty. A person should be there to take any complain
    of the female employees during journey.

    Bye,

    As you are the representative of the women employees working in the office you need to be sure that proper measures and steps are taken for the

    security of the employees. First of all as a female you know that what are problems that are faced by women during the night shifts so it would be

    better that you first make a list of all small and big problems which can be a problem for the female employees at night shift as besides general

    problems related to security these small problems can also become big sometimes.

    Generally the basic safety measure that must be there for security of employees are :

    Proper cab facility with a trusted driver that drops each and every employee in front of there gate and if the gate of the house of employee is in

    some inner parts from the main road than a security guard must go with the employee to the gate.

    Proper communication facility in the cab besides your mobile phones so that in any case police station can be contacted.

    Proper maintenance of cabs timely so that it doesn't gets broken down in middle of road during those late hours.

    If possible presence of a backup cab so that if in any case there is some problem in the cab during night or the cab break's down in middle of road

    than the alternative cab could be called.

    Proper and strict instructions to the driver and some training for emergency conditions.

    Presence of a first aid box in the cab.

    Presence of important numbers in the cab of both police stations that comes in the route and some 24 hours help line numbers both public and if

    present of your office also.

    It is duty of company to take minimum measures for the females working in night shifts.

    First of all they should try to avoid the females for night shifts and should be provided with day shifts.

    Secondly if it becomes necessary to give them night shifts then company need to take some safety measures for the safety of female workers.

    They should be providedwith facility of droping them to their homes in night time.

    There should be seperate sitting facility for female candidates in the office.

    The atmosphere in office should be in that ways that the female candidates feel like thay are in their own home.

    Hello Aspirant,

    As per Factory Act, female employees should not be deployed for night duty but if it is so urgent then necessary precaution should be taken. More than one female employees be deployed together for a single shift in night duty. There should be proper arrangement to pick up the female employees from their residence to office particularly during night duty. This arrangement will avoid unsafe conditions for them while travelling from residence to duty place and vice versa. There should be proper arrangement for refreshments in the campus of the plant/office only so that they could use it in necessity.

    But preference should be made to avoid night duty for female employees and they should be preferred for morning,evening and general shift duty.


    Thanks.

    Hello,

    As a female representative firstly you should highlight about the safety and security aspect of all your female colleagues who work in the night shift.You can ask your company to provide dropping facilities .But company has to make sure that the drivers are reliable enough to provide dropping service to these staffs.Company can keep a 24*7 helpline number in case any staff gets into trouble specially at night.The cars should be supported with gprs so that the locations can be tracked constantly.
