COVID-19: Social distancing and protecting lone workers

Due to social distancing, lone working has become far more common. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have guidance for employers to keep lone workers healthy and safe.

Their revised leaflet Protecting lone workers: How to control the risks of working alone is for anyone who employs lone workers, or engages them as contractors for example, including self-employed people or those who work at home.

It has been updated to include advice on work-related violence, keeping in touch, and the impact of lone working on stress and mental health.

For further information please visit the HSE website.
