About The Course

Certificate in Lone Working (2021-22)

Course Duration: 21 minutes (approx.)

The law requires employers to carefully consider, and deal with, any health and safety risks for their lone workers. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, employers have legal duties to assess all risks to health and safety, including the risk of lone working.

This Essential CPD course provides you with the knowledge and skills to understand the legislative requirements associated with lone working and how to identify, assess and manage the risks to create a safe working environment.

Delivered by health and safety expert, James Whelan, the course has been split into three bite-sized modules and has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, any time, anywhere.

The course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
