A comprehensive guide to Lone Working in local authorities

Practical advice on how to keep your staff safe

Protecting your lone workers

While working alone is usually safe, employees working within public facing roles, face potentially difficult situations on a regular basis as they work in the community, enter client’ s homes alone, work late hours and carry out inspections and maintenance. 

It can be difficult to know what health and safety measures you need to put in place to ensure that all of your employees have access to critical support in an emergency.
