To help control the risk from lone working you’ll need to determine how the person shall be supervised
and agree how you keep in touch. This can include pre-agreed intervals of regular contact using mobile phones,
radio or emails. Also, agree on a notification procedure for when the task is completed and people return to
home, their office or base. The procedure should also detail what action will be
taken if the lone worker does not keep in touch at the agreed intervals. In some circumstances, a log sheet can be kept to know where employees are working,
their estimated time of return, contact details and return. You should monitor how well the procedures are
working and have arrangements in place for emergencies.
