“Lone work” refers to situations where an employee operates without direct supervision or immediate assistance from colleagues. In terms of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), managing the risks associated with lone work is crucial. Employers must conduct risk assessments to identify potential hazards specific to solitary work environments and implement measures to mitigate these risks. This might include providing training on emergency procedures, establishing check-in systems, using technology for communication and monitoring, ensuring access to emergency support, and providing suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) if needed. OHS guidelines emphasize the importance of clear communication, regular check-ins, and proactive measures to ensure the safety and well-being of employees working alone.
