  • Lone Worker

    An employee who carries out a job by themselves and has no direct contact with other staff, management or the general public. The worker may be situated at a remote location away from their primary worksite, on a fixed site where only one person works on the premise, or they work outside regular hours.

    Employers are responsible for the health, safety and general well-being of lone workers and are required by law to implement specific monitoring systems. Lone workers must also cooperate with the health and safety procedures outlined by their employer and report all incidents, near-misses and other dangerous events.
