Lone and Remote Workers (Personal Security)

Online Lone and Remote Workers

ETD’s lone worker training will show you how to improve your safety as a lone worker. 

Working alone can put you in a vulnerable position, which is why thousands of lone and remote workers are at risk every day. It’s important that all lone workers are aware of the risks of working independently to keep safe. 

Whether you’re a sales rep who visits clients, a van driver who delivers parcels, a carer providing home visits or a home-based worker, this online training will introduce you to your safest way of working. This Lone Worker Course couldn’t have come at a more pivotal time. The number of employees who work alone as part of their day-to-day job is rising, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic. Everyone must know how to stay safe.
