Who would benefit

Lone workers are those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision. Employers have a duty to assess risks to lone workers and take steps to avoid or control risks where necessary. Employers also need to be aware of any specific law that prohibits lone working applying in their industry.  Training is particularly important where there is limited supervision to control, guide and help in uncertain situations and crucial in enabling people to cope in unexpected circumstances and with potential exposure to violence and aggression.
