Lone Worker Online Course Description

IIRSM Approved

Every day, thousands of people in the active population are exposed to situations where they are left alone on work premises, but also when they visit members of the public during the course of their working day, or when they are working from home.

Of course, there are many risks associated with working in isolation, where there is no support available from colleagues. These risks can include accidents and possible violence, among others.

What is lone working training?

This is an online course that acts as an introduction to personal safety for lone workers and applies to those people who work alone within business premises. It is also relevant for mobile workers and homeworkers.

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

Target Audience

This online course is aimed at anyone who works alone at any point or manages people that work alone.
