Event details

“Approximately 15-20% of the workforce are lone workers. And of those, 44% felt unsafe while at work and almost 20% struggled to get help after an incident. (EHS Today)”


Ensuring the safety of your most at-risk workers is imperative. Lone workers face the risks of slips, trips, falls, health events, extreme weather, vehicular accidents, and a number of other potentially harmful events, not least the threat of violence. There are also concerns related to stress and mental health, medical suitability to work alone.


Blackline Safety’s connected gas safety and emergency monitoring specialist, Miriam O'Connell is joined by Securitas’s Alex Luke, a highly experienced security professional and Lone Worker expert on this live webinar which explores the stress and well-being implications of working in isolation. Our experts will guide you through how a robust lone worker policy, combined with innovative safety technology, can mitigate potential risks faced every day by those working alone and, in turn, reduce stress and feelings of isolation to improve employee wellbeing.


All attendees will receive a CPD certificate.
