With over 53 million people classified as lone workers in the UK and North America, it is important to consider how to work as safely as possible when alone.This short online training course explains the dangers of working alone, and provides you with simple techniques to keep you and the people you work with safe.About the Course• Working alone, also known as lone working, means working by yourself without close or direct supervision. • It’s important to recognise there is no set duration that establishes someone as a lone worker, and you can be a lone worker for any period of time. • As someone who works alone, you face the same hazards in your daily work as other workers, but the potential for harm is often greater due to the simple fact that you are alone or isolated. • Your employer has a responsibility to keep you safe, but safety starts with you. • If you don’t feel safe working alone, stop, and speak to your line manager, supervisor or safety representative.
