Advice for employers and workers on lone working
Lone workers can be at greater risk of harm as they may not have anyone to help or support them if things go wrong. Employers should provide training, supervision, monitoring and support for those working alone.
The HSE has produced a free-to-download leaflet for anyone who employs lone workers, or engages them as contractors, including self-employed people.
The leaflet is supported by their lone working webpages which include advice aimed at lone workers themselves.
