All workers are exposed to some risk (eg accidents, illnesses or violent situations), but the potential for harm is greater for lone workers because they won’t receive immediate assistance from colleagues or the emergency services.
In the EssentialSkillz Lone Working course, lone workers will learn about their own and their employer’s responsibilities towards health and safety. The course highlights what dangers lone workers might face and what they can do to keep themselves safe as well as other people affected by their work. This is relevant to lone workers whether they work:
- In an office separated from others
- In a remote or isolated location
- At home, or
- Away from base
By understanding what risks lone workers might face, they can help prevent accidents and avoid possible emergency situations.
Like all the EssentialSkillz courses, this Lone Working eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
