People who work in jobs where they spend the majority of time on their own can be susceptible to pressures that people who work within teams are unlikely to encounter. Delivery drivers, cleaning staff, home carers; all these types of employment require a person to work without immediate support, increasing the risk to their personal safety and mental wellbeing.

This Lone Workers course, developed by online training professionals, Espirita Learning, is designed to give employees who have to work alone, particularly those who have to visit customers, the steps to reduce personal safety risks and to improve their confidence when dealing with situations like violence and aggression.
