It is estimated that there are nearly 4 million lone workers operating in the UK at any one time (Office of National Statistics). A huge number of jobs can require people to be left alone. Many of the hazards face by lone workers are similar to those faces by other workers but the risks involved may be greater because the worker is alone. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1979 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, employers still have a duty of care towards lone workers as they are still affected by work related activities.
Upon completion of the Lone Worker course, staff will have an understanding of:
- What is a Lone Worker?

- Potential Risks
