Lone worker safety training
The safety of lone workers is a prime concern for employers of staff required to work alone while visiting tenants or inspecting vacant properties. This course provides a guide to best working practices designed to help workers stay safe while working alone.
Safety awareness when working alone
The course helps lone workers develop routines designed to help them stay safe and to recognise difficult or threatening situations. It covers the procedures that can be put in place to check on the safety of individuals and ensure they are complying with agreed practices. Candidates will learn about safe working practices in different situations like:
Inspecting properties and visiting homes
Driving and parking
Mobile phone benefits and use
Mobile phone muggings
Using taxis/ minicabs/ public transport
Recognising and dealing with threatening or abusive behaviour.
