Introduction to Personal Safety for Lone Workers

IIRSM Approved

Every day, thousands of people are exposed to situations where they are left alone in work premises, when visiting members of the public during their working day, or working from home.

There are many risks associated with working in isolation, without the support of colleagues. These risks can include accidents and violence.

This course acts as an introduction to personal safety for lone workers and applies to those that work alone within business premises, mobile workers and homeworkers.

It covers the legal responsibilities of both employers and employees, some of the common security precautions that can be implemented, practical steps you can take to avoid conflict in lone worker situations and other elements that can contribute to lone worker safety.
