Lone workers are particularly susceptible to health and safety risks that aren’t as likely to occur in busy workplaces. Being isolated from others while carrying out your work can impact your mental health, stress levels and vulnerability.

Although solitary workers aren’t necessarily at a higher risk of being attacked, working alone means they may not have the support network to prevent an incident, or report one. Remote locations, or night shifts with fewer people around, can leave lone workers feeling exposed.

If you manage a lone worker, it’s important that you manage their health and safety carefully. This 1 hour online Lone Worker course has been developed by health and safety professionals to explain all UK legislation, so you can put effective measures in place to safeguard your lone worker(s).

There’s no time limit to this course, so you can learn at your own pace. Accredited and assured by CPD and RoSPA Qualifications.

  • Employers’ responsibilities towards lone workers
  • UK legislation for lone working
  • Risk assessments for lone workers, and how they differ

You’ll receive a CPD-certified digital certificate straight away.

As well as conforming to CPD guidelines, this course is certified by the widely recognised Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Qualifications Assurance System.
