Lone worker policy template

A lone worker policy should outline your commitment to providing a safe and secure working environment for your lone workers. It should include guidance on risk assessments and how to reduce risks, such as providing employees with the necessary safety equipment, training, and support.

It also needs to provide information about who is responsible for monitoring and reporting any incidents, and outline the responsibilities of lone workers, and the procedures they should follow to ensure their safety.

We’ve got you started on all of the above, with our lone worker policy template, which is free to download and simple to customise with editable fields.
