Protecting lone workers
Lone workers can be at greater risk of harm as they may not have anyone to help or support them if things go wrong.
Employers should provide training, supervision, monitoring, and support for those working alone.
The HSE's free to download leaflet 'Protecting lone workers: How to manage the risks of working alone' is for anyone who employs lone workers, or engages them as contractors etc, including self-employed people or those who work alone.
The leaflet is supported by lone working webpages which include advice aimed at lone workers themselves.
