Lone Working Training | Online E-learning

Safeguard against the potential risks of working alone

People who work in isolation or during irregular hours can be at greater risk than other employees. This Lone Working training e-learning will teach you to recognise and safeguard against specific risks, the rights to protection that lone workers have, as well as legal and liability considerations.

Lone workers are people who work by themselves, without direct supervision. Whether working in fixed or changing environments, lone workers are often more vulnerable to specific risk-factors.

The online lone working training will give you a deeper understanding of the potential harm that might face lone workers, and the practical steps to safeguard against it.

Learning includes ways to identify and assess risk, useful procedures to implement, as well as an employer’s legal responsibilities to keep lone workers safe.
