As an employer you must identify and manage risks before people are allowed to work alone. This also applies to anyone contracted to work for you. To ensure safety you will need to have risk assessments, policies and training in place.
Many people routinely work by themselves as part of their normal day to day work.
Working alone or in isolation can place people in a vulnerable position whereby assistance, if required, may not be readily available.
Working alone should not place employees at greater risk than other employees so lone workers must be aware of the particular risks they face and be familiar with control measures in place to ensure their safety.
The course will cover the following areas:
- To heighten awareness regarding the health and safety issues associated with lone working
- To identify the responsibilities of both lone workers and employers
- To promote safe practices for lone working
eLearning courses are designed to be interactive to help learners stay focused and engaged in the learning they are faced with.
The courses require the learner to perform small actions within the course, revealing further information, or quiz questions to help them reflect upon previous course content they have studied. A CPD certificate can be downloaded on completion.
