Employees who work alone or in isolation face an increased risk of confrontation and violence. Even incidents without physical confrontation, can cause stress and be emotionally traumatic for a worker.
Working alone presents additional risks pending location; type of work; public interaction; and consequences of an emergency, accident, or injury. It is important to identify hazards, implement procedures to limit risks, and follow emergency procedures.
