Ensuring health & safety

21 July 2017

The EssentialSkillz Lone Working eLearning course has been designed to enable employers who have identified situations where people work alone, whether in the office or remotely, to provide training and information on the potential hazards and risks they may face and how to determine and implement appropriate controls.

The course highlights how to prevent accidents and avoid possible emergency situations – including fire, equipment failure, illness and accidents, and trips, slips and falls – and explains the organisational accident reporting procedures. The course also demonstrates how to assess different risks, how to develop control measures, how to ensure control procedures are adequate and how to determine if additional measures are required.

Like all the EssentialSkillz courses, this Lone Working eLearning course can be customised to meet the needs of a larger organisation, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.

If you have less than 100 employees and require eLearning on a PAYG basis, visit to download the training you require for your employees who work alone.
