Managing and supporting staff that lone work (Workshop) 22 November 2012 (Fully Booked)
Managing and Supporting Staff Who Lone Work (Fully Booked)
We At Quell are offering a one day workshop on managing and supporting lone working staff that will also have the added value of each attendee receiving a copy of a workplace violence policy. The policy will incorporate both Lone Working & Personal Safety and has been designed in co-operation with our own experts and a legal lawyer who works actively in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
On completion of the workshop the policy content can then be used within their company, inclusive of reporting forms and methods of what to do if a member of staff is either unaccounted for or is involved in an incident, enabling not only the person responsible to be covered but also the organisation.

With the advent of the “The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007”, all organisations that employ staff are bound by a Duty of Care, to ensure that all reasonable measures have been taken and are in operation to ensure the health and safety of their employees at all times.
For the first time, companies and organisations can be found guilty of corporate manslaughter as a result of serious management failures resulting in a gross breach of a duty of care.
All management have a vital role to play in the supporting of staff who lone work within the workplace and also in supporting staff following an incident of work related violence.
The training will enable managers, supervisors and team leaders to follow through their key responsibilities, ranging from their contribution to the safety and wellbeing.
On completion of the training attendees will have developed a better understanding of strategies for assessing and reducing risk and the management of lone workers, promoting personal safety for all members of staff. The key objectives of the training will be:
- Identifying problems or potential incidents lone working staff may face
- Understanding what is Duty of Care and Vicarious Liability and how it can affect those responsible
- Design and implement safety forms relating to Lone Working
- Define what is Lone Working and the responsibilities of both managers and staff
- Acknowledge the different legislative acts associated with lone working and their effects on the workplace
- Develop effective risk assessment methods and systems that include procedures like:
- Health & Safety at Work Order 1978 (NI)
- The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999
- RIDDOR Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1999
- Assess and respond correctly when faced with various incidents relating to lone working
- Calculate realistic and safe actions to reduce the risk of incidents
- Understand and respond to the effects of incidents after an incident
On completion of the workshop each attendee will be taken through the different elements of the policy and be able to question and clarify any elements relating to its contents.
Certification: On full attendance and completion of the 1-day workshop all delegates will be awarded a Quell Certificate in Managing Lone Workers.
