This is a short module designed for employers and employees to lay out definition of lone workers, in addition to what considerations should be made when lone-working.
The focus is on health and safety and will allow you to:
- understand what lone working is and who could be considered to be a lone worker;
- recognise how a dynamic risk assessment applies to lone workers;
- understand and apply precautions that need to be taken when lone working.
There is a short assessment at the end of the module.
The module references the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
