Lone Working - Off The Shelf Elearning Courses

Lone workers represent a particularly vulnerable class of workers. They can be your employees who drive around the city or country every day, social workers who visit their clients alone or engineers dealing with technical problems in remote areas. Employers need to focus on providing extensive training to any lone worker.

Lone workers are often exposed to greater risks than other employees, due to the nature of the work done in isolation and without direct supervision. It is important for anyone who works alone, as well as for the people responsible for lone workers, to understand the risks and apply precautions to mitigate those risks.

At Sponge, we have designed the Lone Working elearning course, through which the learner will be able to understand what it means, and what considerations need to be made when lone working.

Fully online and interactive, available 24/7 on any device, with no time limits, thanks to our state-of-the-art LMS. The course contains an assessment, and a certificate is downloadable upon successful completion of the eLearning module.
