Lone Worker Training Course
This Lone Worker Training is an online course aimed at individuals who work by themselves with no supervision. This course will highlight areas of risk that may be faced when working alone and looks at the kinds of measures which can be put in place to minimise the risks of lone working.
Under Section 19 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, employers have a duty to ensure the safety of their lone working staff. Employers can show compliance by carrying out a thorough risk assessment of the employees' environment.

The employee must ensure that they are using the right tools or equipment for the job and in accordance with the relevant safety guidelines. They must also report any incident to their employer.
