Personal Safety for Lone Workers
Every day, thousands of people are exposed to situations where they are left alone in work premises, when visiting members of the public during their working day, or working from home.

It covers the legal responsibilities of both employers and employees, some of the common security precautions that can be implemented, practical steps you can take to avoid conflict in lone worker situations and other elements that can contribute to lone worker safety.
