Lone working policy
A lone working policy is a practical guide that employees can apply to their roles.
Although not a legal requirement, an effective policy can help to promote a strong safety culture among employees, keeping them safe and reducing the risk of legal issues.
Your lone working policy should be a document that is accessible and easy to understand. Lone workers and their managers should be familiar with the document and its location. Issue a copy to new employees who will work alone and to any contractors or temporary workers you use.
Mental health policy
A mental health policy defines the overall vision of your approach to mental health. This provides benchmarks for preventing and treating mental disorders, as well as promoting mental health in your workplace.
The policy should apply to all members of staff and should be communicated and implemented across the company.
The policy should highlight what you as a business intend to do to acknowledge and support employees who are struggling. Examples of mental health policy elements include how you'll aim to:
- Treat mental health problems seriously.
- Identify issues and work with the employee to resolve them.
- Support all staff faced with mental health issues.
- Maintain a healthy environment that staff feel comfortable, safe and happy to work in.
