Lone worker in a multi-storey building

Working alone is one of the toughest and boring jobs. There are situations that the lone working has led to disaster. There was incident occurred that a lone worker had been murdered by a customer while single manning a betting shop late in the evening. Even though the lone working is not legally permitted, many organizations prefer lone working since it increases the productivity and reduces the cost.
I am hired as a receptionist of a multi-storey building. I am a bit nervous since I have to work all alone. Also, I have heard about the many disasters occurred for the lone workers. This adds up to my worry.
I know most of the lone workers rely on some safety tips for their protection and I am aware of it.
1) They scan the environment and make sure that everything is fine
2) They check their health and ensure they are keeping fine because there is no one to help at any critical stage
3) Get help from the technologies, like the lone workers monitoring app.
4) Post emergency phone numbers in the convenient locations and add a one-touch emergency button.
I still feel nervous and uncomfortable about my job. I have to report there in the next week. Should I go there or wait for yet another opportunity? Would like get your suggestion on this.
Thanks from McCoy

I'm with you, Jennifer. As a woman, I'd be very nervous about working alone in a large building. Are there no other positions available where you'd feel more comfortable? If not, I'd seriously consider looking elsewhere.
