This module is designed for anybody who has to work alone or who is left alone with customers or other members of the public at some time in their working day.
- What will I study?
Every day thousands of people will be exposed to situations in which they are left alone with customers or other members of the public during their working day.
However there are many risks associated with working in isolation and without the support of colleagues, and violence against employees is unfortunately too common.

- The basic process of how people's roles are assessed to see what potential risks exist from lone working
- Some of the key questions you can ask yourself in order to assess your own situation each time you work alone
- Some key advice on how to act and what precautions to take in order to reduce the risks of lone working
