Lone Worker Training
Lone Worker Training
Lone working training is an essential way to improve productivity and ensure your business is fully compliant with the law on lone workers.
We can provide your business with lone working training, to ensure that you are fully compliant with UK law.
Lone Working Training
Under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HSWA), lone workers are particularly vulnerable to risks while carrying out work. Therefore, it is a legal requirement for all UK employers to ensure an adequate lone working risk assessment has been conducted, followed by the necessary training.
In the event that adequate lone working training has not been provided, the employer will be in breach of HSE regulations. Failing to abide by HSE and the HSWA can result in legal action being taken, taking the form of heavy fines and even jail terms. To avoid this, it is crucial that your business provides lone working training to your employees working alone.

- Ensuring the lone worker is competent to deal with unexpected circumstances
- Ensuring the lone worker knows when to ask for help and advice.
