Lone Working Training for Health and Social Care Staff - Level 1 - Online CPD Course.

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Lone Worker in Health and Care training course for front-line healthcare and social care providers. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

A lone worker (LW) is an employee who performs an activity that is carried out in isolation from other workers without close or direct supervision.

Establishing a healthy and safe working environment for lone workers can be different from organising the health and safety of other employees. They should not be put at more risk than other people working for you.

It will often be safe to work alone. However, the law requires employers to think about and deal with any health and safety risks before people are allowed to do so.
