Lone Working - Hazards and Risks


Many people have jobs where they are required to work alone and without direct supervision. This absence of immediate help or assistance creates significant risk because of the ever-present prospect of accidental injury or violence and aggression – the latter, for some occupations, being accompanied by the added risk of robbery or other crime.

This course introduces the learner to the potential hazards faced by lone workers. It then considers whose responsibility it is to reduce or remove the risks associated with these hazards and, in overview, how this is done.
