Lone working risk assessment form template
Individuals are alone at work when they are on their own, they cannot be seen or heard by another worker, cannot expect a visit from another worker for some time and/or where assistance is not readily available when needed. Therefore, lone workers are those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision.
Lone working is not against the law, however, the law does require you to carry out a risk assessment.
A separate lone working risk assessment is especially important because lone workers are often more vulnerable than someone who, for example, works in a busy office.
