Vulnerable and Lone Worker Policies

Every business should consider if its employees are vulnerable and put policies and procedures in place to reduce the risk of harm. This policy will help to keep your employees safe and provide clear steps to safeguard their safety and welfare with the aim of avoiding serious incidents and litigious actions.

Standard Policy: For businesses where lone working does not occur and employees have a secure work base. Includes scope and purpose, definition of vulnerable workers, simple model of clocking in/signing in/telephoning in, procedure for incidents where there are inadequate staffing levels, how to record, report and escalate incidents and a simple risk assessment tool.

Custom Policy: For businesses where employees frequently work alone from a secure base and work outside of daylight hours, employees work alone in a public place which is considered low risk or there are high value items in the workplace. As per Standard Policy with a more complex and through protocol for monitoring employee location and status by your chosen means of communication. A more complex risk assessment tool with bespoke examples of how to minimise risk of harm. Examples of such businesses include lone workers in petrol stations or other 24 hour businesses, jewellery stores, street based marketing work, or any business where staff are required to travel from base to base.

Fully Bespoke Policy: If your business requires employees to work alone and attend high risk locations such as unfamiliar domicile properties, secure facilities or carry high value items on their person then a bespoke policy is recommended.
