Lone workers are those people who work by themselves without either close supervision or other workers for company. They may work in fixed establishments, be mobile workers or a mix of both. Lone working is not prohibited in most cases, but employers will need to risk assess some work situations where a lone worker will be at a greater level of risk of harm.
