Workshop TitleGoing it alone: Lone worker training

Summary of the overall aims of the course

It’s estimated that there are between 3-4 million lone workers in the UK. The true figure is likely to be much higher, as lone working regulations apply to so many professions; cleaners, estate agents, trades people, home visitors, financial advisors, self-employed people, as well as anyone who could be left alone in an office. The list is endless.

One thing we do know for sure is that organisations have a legal duty to risk assess lone working, and implement control measures.

This short course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to discharge your legal and moral duty to look after lone workers. We’ll help you identify risks in your workplace, review high and low tech control measures and help you develop your lone working policy.

Don’t let your staff become one of the tens of thousands of UK workers who are abused, attacked or become victims of accidents every day in the UK.

Course objectives

At the end of the course you’ll be able to:

  • Explain the legal responsibilities of employers and employees in relation to lone working
  • Identify potential high risk working practices for your organisation
  • Implement proportional control measures to reduce or manage risks
  • Conduct a lone worker risk assessment
  • Construct a robust lone working policy for your organisation

Target audience

Managers, supervisors, team leaders or HR staff with responsibility for other staff who work without close or direct supervision.
