Course Introduction

The EssentialSkillz Lone Worker training has been designed to familiarise lone workers with their duties under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, and to equip lone workers with the information and understanding they need to reduce the risks of working alone.

Course Content

Working alone is not against the law. But employers do have a range of legal duties – specified by the Health and Safety Executive and enacted in health and safety legislation – to protect their employees and to consider specific risks for lone workers. Employees who work alone also have responsibilities, to take reasonable care of themselves, be aware of any potential risks and to follow safety procedures in place.

The EssentialSkillz Lone Worker Online Training Course has been designed to enable employers who have identified situations where people work alone, whether in the office or remotely, to provide training and information on the potential hazards and risks they may face and how to determine and implement appropriate controls.

Our Lone Worker course highlights how to prevent accidents and avoid possible emergency situations – including fire, equipment failure, illness and accidents, and trips, slips and falls – and explains the organisational accident reporting procedures. The course also demonstrates how to assess different risks, how to develop control measures, how to ensure control procedures are adequate and how to determine if additional measures are required.
