A comprehensive guide to Lone Working in the charity sector

A step by step guide to fulfilling your duty of care to your employees

Protecting your lone workers

Every employer has a duty of care to protect their employees from workplace risks. While working alone is usually safe, employees and volunteers working alone may face potentially difficult situations on a regular basis. Such environments mean that unfortunately, violence and aggression is common within the industry.

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. To help you access the right information, we’ve created a free guide outlining everything you need to know about lone working in the charity sector and how best to protect your lone workers.
