Lone Worker

Confined Space Medicals

Lone Worker

Lone working appears in a variety of industries including factory and warehouse workers and those working in unsociable hours like office cleaners or security officers as well as drivers, engineers and sales representatives. Alongside this employers are required to be aware of any specific risks posed to lone workers that apply in their industry sector in order to establish safe working arrangements for their employees and to establish if the person is medically fit to carry out work on their own.

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 it is the employers’ duty to assess risks of the job to their employees and take steps to avoid or control risks associated with the job.

Employees have the responsibility to avoid risk wherever possible and co-operate with their employer to enable them to meet their legal obligations by wearing appropriate protective clothing and adhering to safe systems of working.

Lone working is commonplace and legally acceptable providing the necessary Risk Assessments are conducted for a potentially large range of duties that has to be covered under the above Act and Regulation, including:

• Identifying the hazards

• Assessing the risks at the workplace

• Implement measures into place in order to reduce the risks posed to individuals’ health.

For further information on how you can protect your employees from the possible harmful effects of lone working and comply with legislative measures, the HSE website http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg73.pdf
