eLearning For You endorsement NCFE logo


Working alone is not against the law and your environment will often be safe to do so. However, the law requires employers to consider carefully, and then deal with, any health and safety risks for people working alone. Employers are responsible for the health, safety and welfare at work of all their workers. They also have responsibility for the health and safety of any contractors or self-employed people doing work for them. These responsibilities cannot be transferred to any other person, including those people who work alone.

As more and more businesses find themselves dealing with Risk Assessment and Health & Safety, it is important that we have an educated workforce to avoid any potential pitfalls that may occur through Lone Working. For this reason, eLearning For You has developed a course that brings understanding to:

The legal requirements of a business in the protection of a Lone Worker
What is a Lone Worker
How to complete a Risk Assessment
What control measures can be used and how to gauge their effectiveness
Sensible measures that can be taken by an individual when Lone Working

This course aims to provide the learner with knowledge and skill to comply with the legal requirements under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 Section 2 (1) and 3 - Lone Working.
