Lone Worker Personal Safety and Situational Awareness Training Course

  • Lone workers or field based employees  working away from the office  face a different set of personal safety challenges than do those working within the secure perimeter of your offices and facilities.
  • By the nature of their job descriptions, lone workers travel between and spend time at disparate locations.  These may include visits to unfamiliar areas that may place them in isolated environments. Maintaining situational awareness for lone workers is key to their personal safety.
  • Have you  implemented sound strategy to make all phases of their workday safer? Have you provided them with action plans to deal with any number of potential threats or situations relative to their specific job descriptions?
  • Do you know where your employees are at any time during their work day and do you have a communication plan / policy in place?
