    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Solicitors in Garstang

    If you’ve been injured in the workplace when working alone, you should come straight to AAH and speak to our solicitors in Garstang for help to claim your compensation. The reason is that AAH is one of the UK’s foremost specialist injury claim lawyers when it comes to claiming compensation for workers hurt at work through no fault of their own.

    Working alone is not prohibited under health and safety legislation

    Working alone in any workplace (whether it’s an office, a factory or a warehouse, etc.) is not really to be recommended from a health and safety point of view, but it is not prohibited. Your employer may insist on some sort of special training, especially if you intend to use some sort of machinery. Many employers actually forbid the use of what may be considered to be dangerous machinery.

    Creating new, or modifying existing, risk assessments

    It’s always a good idea for any employer who is considering allowing staff to work alone to create new risk assessments for any operations a worker, working alone, may perform. Alternatively they can add a section to their existing risk assessments specifically for work alone options.

    Questions to consider?

    When making out risk assessments or modifying existing risk assessments in terms of work alone scenarios, any employer should consider asking themselves the following questions:

    • Is there any specific risk from working alone in the workplace?
    • Is there safe ingress and egress for a lone worker?
    • If any machinery is involved, can it be operated safely by a lone worker?
    • Will there be any risk of violence?
    • Would a female worker working alone be at risk?
    • Is age of the lone worker something to be considered?
    • Is the proposed lone worker medically fit?
    • What happens if an emergency arises?

    The HSE work-alone publication

    The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) have a publication that deals with work-alone scenarios. It’s called “Work Alone in Safety”, and it can be downloaded in PDF format from their website.
