Every Second Counts | Lone Worker Safety
Every Second Counts
Employees workingalone on the job face risks – both social and environmental.
It may not always be apparent, but working alone is a very common practice, carried out daily. Whether it’s a nurse providing care within the community, a retail worker closing the store at the end of the day, or a plumber being called ‘after hours’, to a customer’s home -lone working takes place all the time.
While working alone is perfectly legal, employers are responsible for the safety of each employee and need to consider the risks that their workforce may face.
Unfortunately, workers can be subject to elements of social or environmental risk during their working day. Examples can range from accidents such as slips, trips and falls, to be the subject of physical or verbal abuse from members of the public - risks which are heightened when working alone. Therefore, it’s imperative that employers do everything possible to safeguard their workforce.
