Working Alone In Safety
Although lone workers cannot be subject to constant supervision, it is still an employer’s duty to ensure their health and safety at work. Lone workers should not be at more risk than other employees and face particular problems. Some of the issues which need special attention when planning safe working arrangements are:
- Does the workplace present a special risk to the lone worker?
- Is there a risk of violence?
Procedures need to be put in place to monitor lone workers to see they remain safe. These may include:
- Supervisors periodically visiting and observing people working alone
- Regular contact between the lone worker and supervision using either a telephone or radio
- Checks that a lone worker has returned to their base or home on completion of a task.
Our Real Time software covers the above points laid out in the Health & Safety Executive.
