Course DescriptionLone Worker Training

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 requires employers to undertake a risk assessment of lone workers, to determine whether or not an employee would be at significantly higher risk when working alone.

Lone workers should not be at any more risk than other employees, so this may require extra risk control measures being put in place. Employers must have a lone worker policy in place.
