Managing lone workers carries additional risks than those experienced in a busy work environment. Understanding and assessing the risk your lone workers face is important.
You need to comply with health and safety legislation and demonstrate your duty of care.
Managing the risks faced by lone workers should not create huge amounts of paperwork and additional work. It should help you to identify and implement appropriate safety measures to control them.
