Critical Safety Agent

So what does a Critical Safety Agent really do?

Think of yourself as someone who will ensure high quality and safe experiences for both drivers and riders in a rideshare business. Some calls may be difficult, so not everyone will qualify for this role. We make sure we get the best of the best, after all, we are a ridiculously good company, so we make sure our employees are top-notch.

As a Critical Safety Agent , you will be instrumental in assisting drivers and riders who have lost items or are experiencing a safety issue.

TaskUs devotes considerable resources to the wellbeing of its employees.

Being a Critical Safety Agent means participating in Wellness sessions and other resiliency programs:

All CSA employees will have access to counseling or coaching sessions to ensure awareness of wellness resources and to ensure job adjustment.

All CSA employees will attend skills based resiliency training.

Creating a Culture of Awareness and Prevention:

TaskUs believes in being transparent with our new employees about their job duties and the possible impact.

Some of your work may include interacting with riders and drivers who are in distress, agitated or in danger. Examples of these types of situations may include, but are not limited to:

Pick up or drop off spot was not at the correct location or was in a place that made the rider feel unsafe.

Driver or rider made a sexual comment or advance towards the rider

Driver or rider used a racial slur, or displayed bias

Car was unhygienic ( dirty, foul smell, etc)

Callers may be inebriated, calling to report a variety of concerns

Reporting a car accident, up to and including collision with other vehicles and/or pedestrians

Driver or rider was assaulted (sexually or physically)

Driver is taking the rider to an undisclosed or improper location

A driver may call to report assault, violence, etc.

A driver or rider is experiencing a medical emergency

Driver or rider may be in distress (up to and including suicidal thoughts or actions).

As a Critical Safety Agent , it is important for you to know the potential risks related to this type of work. While TaskUs is focused on employee wellness by having wellness providers available (on-site or remote), resiliency programming, and other wellness initiatives, exposure to disturbing situations is unavoidable. Some individuals with a sensitivity to viewing or experiencing disturbing situations may be at risk for developing distress, mental health symptoms, or, in rare instances, Secondary Traumatic Stress based on the situations they are involved with.

TaskUs reserves the right to reassign Critical Safety Agents to other TaskUs projects based on staffing needs, employee performance, and other considerations.

In order to help create a community that is safe for all employees, the Resiliency and Wellness Team takes an active role in the primary prevention of mental health concerns through direct practice efforts, e-learning, skills training, and outreach efforts to the TaskUs community. Our programs seek to raise awareness about psychological issues, challenge ideas that contribute to social inequity, disempowerment, and discrimination, as well as the underlying structures that support them. In addition, our programs empower employees to find and use their voices in a healthy and productive way.
