Course Overview

Discover how to protect and support employees and colleagues who may have no immediate contact with others when you take this Lone Workers’ Safety course. A “lone worker” is defined as being someone who usually performs their activities in solitude and has no close or direct supervision with any other individual. With this expert training, you will understand the moral and practical obligations that are needed to make sure that the offsite workforce is fit and well.

Following the advent of the pandemic, home-based employment and remote working has become a necessity to many companies, and the safety implications need to be considered. In this course, you will learn where the responsibilities for a lone worker’s health status lie, the UK laws related to remote working, and ways to assess the risks associated with offsite work. Additionally, you will also be taught how to identify potential mental health issues and ensure sufficient first aid facilities are available for every worker.

  • Understanding the risks of lone work and who has supervisory responsibilities 
  • UK health and safety acts that cover the well-being of lone workers
