Lone Working IN the Workplace Course Contents

Lone Working IN the Workplace is essential training for those who are based in a fixed workplace, but are away from co-workers for all or part of the day. It also applies to those whose job requires them to receive visitors, members of the public, customers or patients – in fact anyone they may not know. Although personal safety at work is something that concerns everyone, lone workers are more vulnerable and at greater risk of violence and aggression.

This course will introduce the topic of personal safety; looking at increasing observation and awareness of other people’s behaviour and making sure you have strategies to avoid threatening situations.

1.What is Personal Safety?

In this section we cover who is at risk and why. Who is responsible for safety during a working day? It looks at the importance of preparing for a visit and talks about trusting your instincts.

2. Practical Planning

This section covers the practicalities of getting where you are going. It includes making sure you are properly prepared – such as checking the ammount of battery in your mobile phone. It covers getting ‘there’ on foot, by car, using public transport, taxi and then what to do on arrival to stay safe.

3.Staying in control

This section is about being aware of the other person, recognising the signs of aggression early, defusing trouble and keeping control of a situation.  We use actors to play out scenarios, making it really clear and easy-to-understand what’s going on. This section will also include how to escape, personal alarms and how to report an incident.

 Test & Certificate

This Lone Working IN the Workplace training programme concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training, and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout.

4. Working alone

This is a simple-to-use interactive tool which can be used to create your own Risk Assessments. It uses short summary reminders from section 3 to help you fill out each column of the risk assessment form.

Your risk assessments are saved and can be accessed either from within this programme or directly through the LMS.
