According to the Government of Canada’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, employees who work alone require special safety training to comply with regulations. This is particularly important for lone workers who handle cash or valuables, carry out most of their tasks in isolated environments, travel extensively, or are required to handle hazardous materials.
Lone Worker Safety Training draws attention to the perils of working alone and/or in remote locations and proposes a set of practical safety measures that can be implemented to reduce potential risks.
Lone Worker Safety is aimed at employees who spend most of their work time alone and/or in remote locations that are not easily accessible by emergency personnel. The course should be completed by existing lone workers, but also by potential candidates looking to complete their CVs.
In addition, businesses in some industries are more likely to require lone worker safety training. These include:
- Logging & Forestry,
- Waste Management,
- Energy & Electricity,
- Oil & Gas,
- Logistics (Shipping).
According to the OHS, employers who hire lone workers are largely responsible for their safety. As such, it is their obligation to implement lone worker safety courses for personnel who require such training.
On the other hand, the employee must dedicate time and effort to the completion of the training program and the effective application of learnt strategies in the workplace. Furthermore, many people who are not yet lone workers, but who wish to obtain related jobs can acquire and undergo this course to complete their CVs.
To complete this safety course, you must be able to broadly define the dangers of working alone and understand the employer’s responsibilities to implement safety measures for lone workers. In addition, you should be able to recognize jurisdictions with additional regulations for lone workers and describe a set of practices that employees in these provinces can apply to maintain their safety in the workplace.
Employees who frequently work alone should re-take this course every year. New technologies and safety measures are constantly being developed to better protect lone workers. It is in your best interest to update your knowledge as more information becomes available.
Lone Worker Safety is usually purchased together with Conflict Resolution, First Aid, and/or Electrical Safety and Awareness.
