Are you responsible for people who works alone?  If so, you need to instruct them on the risks of lone working and how to work safely.


Lone workers represent a particularly vulnerable class of workers; therefore employers should focus on providing extensive training to any lone worker. This Lone Working eLearning module is important for anyone who either works alone or is responsible for someone who works alone. It will help you understand what lone working is and apply precautions that need to be taken. 

A lone worker is an employee that carries out a major part of their activity in isolation from other workers and usually without direct supervision. For these reasons, lone workers are often exposed to greater risks than other employees. The Lone Working eLearning Module is an essential tool for lone workers as it provides an understanding of the risks of being a lone worker, how to prevent dangerous situations from happening, how to carry out a dynamic risk assessment.

Upon completion of the Lone Working eLearning Module, the user will be able to understand what a lone worker is and what considerations need to be made when lone working. This is a fully online interactive course and assessment, accessible on any device, 24/7, with no time limits.  A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning module.
