Course Description The hazards faced by lone workers can be made significantly more high risk, if effective training has not been provided. Whether it’s dealing with aggressive members of the public or contractors, lone working places any employee at a greater degree of risk than those working in teams. It is essential that any employer have in place the right procedures to comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all staff whilst at work.
This means that any risks and hazards associated with the task or lone working must be assessed and control measures implemented. This could include supervision, training, PPE or instruction. In addition all employers must also check to make sure that the control measures are used and the risk assessment is reviewed.
