Lone workers can be receptionists working in isolated lobbies, home-care nurses conducting patient visits, long haul drivers transporting goods, and custodians cleaning offices late at night. There’s an inherent danger to solitary jobs. If something happens, will other people know about it? Will there be someone nearby to help? Will they get to you in time?
Identifying when lone work happens is only the first step in mitigating the risks associated with it. SafetyVantage’s Working Alone Awareness course enables learners to identify various lone work situations and associated hazards, while also providing best practices and safe work procedures designed to keep lone workers safe. Learners explore Working Alone Policies, communication plans, person-check procedures, and even learn the best communication devices for lone and remote work.
The course covers:
- Defining working alone
- Identifying lone work situations
- Understanding personal security
- Assessing and controlling lone work hazards
- Best practices for the five main types of lone workers
- Effective communication and contact
When employees know how to prevent risks, mitigate hazards, and keep themselves safe, especially when they’re alone, they’re motivated to do their job, and do it safely. This course is developed for workers, is delivered online, and includes interactive exercises and quizzes. Once a learner successfully completes the course a training certificate is issued online.
