Are you a lone worker? Are you safe?

Are you a lone worker? Are you safe?

Are you a lone worker? Are you safe? New figures released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) show that approximately 20% of the UK workforce are lone workers. The growth in numbers to over 6 million people is due to more flexible working conditions, working from home and people running their own businesses.

Are you safe? Could you deal with an accident?

Do you drive for work? If there was an accident could you deal with any casualties?

Do you meet the HSEs minimum requirements for first aid as a lone worker?

If you can’t answer these questions, then you need to find out the answers and how they relate to your situation. We run Emergency First Aid at Work courses nationally at a range of venues. This is the HSE’s 1 day first aid course for those working in low risk environments.  If you work in a specialist sector, we will have a course for you too.
