Employees who work alone or in isolation tend to be more vulnerable to safety hazards than those who have coworkers present. If a lone worker is injured or an emergency occurs, how do they get help? Even though such incidents are uncommon, when they do occur the consequences can be serious.
This course is for anyone who works alone, supervises others who work alone, or supports the health and safety of lone workers in their organization (JOHS Committee members).
In this course, you will learn about the common risks and hazards associated with working alone, the responsibilities of a lone worker and their employer, and some strategies that can be used to minimize risks.
