Who are lone workers and what jobs do they do?

Lone workers are those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision.

Lone Workers are people working in fixed establishments

  • People working alone in premises, eg in small workshops, petrol stations, kiosks or shops.
  • People who work from home.
  • People working separately from others, eg in factories, warehouses, leisure centres.
  • People working outside normal hours, eg cleaners and security, production, maintenance or repair staff.

Lone Workers are people working away from their fixed base

  • Workers involved in construction, plant installation, maintenance and cleaning work, electrical repairs, lift repairs, painting and decorating or vehicle recovery.
  • Agricultural and forestry workers.
  • Service workers, eg rent collectors, postal staff, social workers, home helps, doctors, district nurses, pest control workers, drivers, engineers, architects, estate agents, sales representatives and similar professionals visiting domestic and commercial premises.

Lone working can be both intimidating and at times dangerous, so the protection of lone workers involves a twofold approach; not only to provide safeguards but also to offer reassurance to the people involved.
