Lone Working

Published December 11, 2018 Author: Andrew Felix Rose

An employee who works in a remote or isolated area without direct contact or supervision with other staff. Due to a lack of onsite support, lone workers are at a greater risk of confrontation and personal injury.

While lone workers must take care to look after their own health and safety, employers also have a duty of care to create a safe work environment and provide suitable control measures to minimise the risk of working alone.

Examples of control measures for lone workers include periodic check-ups, use of remote monitoring technology (i.e. security cameras), automatic warning devices, and locking up and securing the place.
