Setting up a Group Escalation Procedure

An Escalation Procedure is a set of step by step instructions a monitor needs to follow if a worker fails to check in or requests immediate help. Within the Ok Alone system there is a hierarchy of Escalation Procedures.

What Escalation Procedures are there?

If someone has a Worker Escalation Procedure, it will take priority over any other Escalation Procedure within the system (Group or Company) and will be the information sent to their Monitor in an emergency.

If someone does not have an individual Worker Escalation Procedure, the system will then look for a Group Escalation Procedure and that will be the information sent to their Monitor.

If someone does not have a Worker Escalation Procedure or a Group Escalation Procedure, then the system will send out information from the Company Escalation Procedure to their Monitor.

Worker Escalation > Group Escalation > Company Escalation
