3 steps for a lone working risk assessment

In many jobs and activities you are on your own. Be it the nightly inspection of the security staff, or the late shift, that closes the shop. Both could get into trouble.Employers should focus on safe working practices and protocols to minimise risks to which individual workers may be exposed. The three most important points to consider when carrying out a risk assessment for individual workers are:

1. Carry out a risk assessment and take measures

It is essential to carry out regular risk reviews to identify potential risks in individual work. For employees working alone, it is particularly important to ensure that they are exposed to minimal or no risk. To be able to assess the risks of the activities of persons working alone, the ability of the persons to act after a possible damaging result must also be taken into account. Risks are divided into levels and are categorised in the end.

  1. Low danger - the person remains capable of action.

  2. Increased danger - in case of emergency the person's ability to act remains limited

  3. Critical Danger - in an emergency, the person is no longer able to act.

2. Check and communicate health status

Individual employees should be physically fit before starting their shift. It is important to advise them on safety measures and to communicate with them about their mental and physical fitness and any other concerns they may have during their work.

3. keep the overview and offer training sessions

You should carry out regular checks, with a checklist for working alone, on site to evaluate working conditions and performance. Establish a personal relationship with your staff and ensure that training and advice is provided whenever necessary.
