Does your company require legal Lone Worker compliance?
We offer a one day bespoke workshop for those that work alone either on or off-site
This valuable and interactive course is designed for those working alone or in a vulnerable situation where personal safety is paramount. We will with tried and trusted methods develop the skills either you or your staff will require to manage and assess risk, defuse and resolve incidents and disengage from high risk encounters.
There have been a staggering 1,200 incidents reported by 184 councils (in England and Wales) over the last 3 years; 796 of those incidents concerning physical assaults on staff. Housing association employees, particularly those who work alone, and in sometimes unpredictable situations, demand robust personal safety systems and on the job training solutions.
Under Health and Safety legislation, employers have a duty to provide training to enable their employees to take their safety seriously and not just tolerate violence and aggression as an acceptable ‘part of the job’.
The first-ever conviction secured under the 2007 Corporate Homicide/Corporate Manslaughter Act was in a case where a lone worker was killed and the company he was working for was held to be responsible for failing to protect him.
The CPS suggested that the company's "systems had failed to take all reasonably practicable steps to protect him" and the jury found that:
"The Corporate Manslaughter Act enables prosecutors to go after senior managers straight up the management chain"
