If you employ or manage someone who is required to work in isolation from others or without direct supervision, then it’s essential that the risks to their health and safety are carefully managed. Lone workers face specific risks that employees in busy workplaces are less likely to encounter so it’s important that they are identified early and effectively controlled.

This online course will provide you with a variety of practical controls that you can implement in your work environment to help keep lone workers safe from harm.
