Anyone who works alone at any time, or who is alone with visitors.
How long is the course?
25 minutes of interactive training.
You will learn about why some people are more vulnerable and the reasons for that. We give you step by step guidance to preparing for a visit where you will be alone with an unknown person, and remind you to pay attention to your instincts.
You will learn how to get around safely, covering the risks associated with public transport, walking and driving yourself. We give you crucial reminders, such as ensuring that your mobile phone battery is sufficiently charged.
You will learn the early warning signs of aggressive intent, ways to calm things down and distract the aggressor – these skills are taught through watching enactments of different scenarios. You will also learn about personal alarms you can carry, the best ways to escape any given situation and the procedure for reporting it if you are attacked.
On completion of all of the above sections of the course you will take a 20-question multiple-choice test. You can then get a printed certificate to show you have completed the Lone Working in the Workplace training.
