Lone Working & Personal Safety

Outline

The dangers of lone working or violence cannot always be foreseen or avoided therefore it is far better for employees to be prepared than to assume an attitude of "it will never happen to me".
This half day training session has been developed to raise employees awareness of the possiblilty of violence plus the dangers of lone working and to provide advice and guidance on preventing violence/viloent situations, along with tips on how to improve employee safety when working alone.

Outcomes

Participants learn how to take steps to reduce personal risks and to improve their

employers should practice to ensure staff stay safe.
