Introduction to Personal Safety for Lone Workers

Each day many people find themselves in situations where they are working alone, away from the support and safety of colleagues and a familiar workplace. Unfortunately, this increases exposure to potentially life-threatening accidents and violence.

This course will introduce enrollees to personal safety for lone workers, no matter what line of work they do. Furthermore, enrollees will gain a clear understanding of the legal responsibilities for both employers and employees, security precautions that should be implemented and more.

What are the benefits of this course?

This course is approved and certified by the iiRSM (the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management).
