Why This Course Is Essential

Employee safety is a top concern for any organization. Employers have a duty of care obligation to keep their people safe, and employees need peace of mind that their organization is not going to put them in harm’s way.

Lone workers are typically out in the field with no direct supervision or work colleague. As a result, they many face unique threats that can put them at risk or work-related injuries.

Because of their isolation, the risks are elevated. When an organization doesn’t have a lone worker policy and program in place , the workers will feel vulnerable and exposed.

Fortunately, there are measures every business can take to give their people the level of comfort and safety they deserve. Developing an effective safety program centered around risks, roles, communication, and education is the surest way to safeguard employees.
