We thought a three-hour virtual conference would be long enough but we were wrong! There were so many questions put forward by the audience we simply couldn’t answer them all live so here are the answers to those we didn’t get round to on the day…
We know how disappointed the Lone Worker Community is that we have had to postpone our face-to-face event so we would like to invite you to join us for a few hours of all things Lone, Remote, and Hybrid Worker. This is your chance to hear from our Keynote Speakers in our FREE webinar (virtually a conference) on 12th October at 09.30.
One of our Trusted Exhibitors StaySafe are running an informative webinar with Sean Toon, mental health speaker at PROUD2BSAFE on the 27th September at 12pm (BST).
Sean will be sharing his story on how his mental health affected him and the changes he made in order to reclaim his life.
He’ll also be discussing the effects mental health can have on an individual’s ability to work safely and what employers can do to support their employees.

Vismo who are one of our new exhibitors this year focus on supporting workers who travel globally, lone work or work from home. Working from home is something many of us have experienced some for the first time) in the last 18 months, so we asked Vismo to share their thoughts on the associated risks.
Grab a cuppa and read on…
One of our new exhibitors this year is Equivital. We spent some time chatting to Anmol Sood, CEO of Equivital to learn more about their approach and the specific ways they can help businesses mange the risks to lone and remote workers.
As most of us return to our usual workplaces – including remote, off-site settings – after the Covid-19 pandemic-related closures, it is more important than ever to review and update your existing lone worker policy. Or if you don’t have one already in place, now is the time to build it.
There are many different views on what should be in a policy and whether you even need a Lone Worker Policy in the first place. We spoke to Vatix one of our new Exhibitors for 2021 to hear their views on producing a robust lone worker policy.
Nicole was asked to write an article for the industry leading IOSH magazine on managing the risks to staff who continue to work remotely post lockdown, here she looks at why lone or remote working might not work for everyone, some of the steps organisations can take to support their remote workers and reviewing some of the risks this group of workers are now faced with.
The subject of mental health has been propelled towards the top of many organisation’s agendas, owing to the uncertainties, challenges and trauma of the global pandemic and many more people working from home. We spoke to Dr Liz Royle of Power To Respond a specialist crisis and trauma company to discuss why people find it difficult to discuss their mental health and ask for support.
We spoke to Vismo one of our brand new exhibitors for 2021 to ask them for their views on the challenges of managing remote and lone workers’ mental health and wellbeing and how they can help.
As we begin 2021 in National Lockdown, many of us will once again be working from home (and some of us never made it back to the office!). Working from home is not ideal for many of us and can lead to real physical pain if our work set ups are not ergonomically sound. As a timely reminder of some of the strategies that you can put into place, we spoke to Nichola Adams, MSc Health Ergonomics and Founder of Inspired Ergonomics. Read on to benefit from her advice.
We are thrilled to announce our speakers and timetable for our ‘Virtual Conference’ event on 13th October. Three hours of quality input from expert speakers! Don’t forget this is a FREE event that replaces our main event for this year. You can register for the virtual conference for FREE (but don’t leave it too long as spaces are limited – although not as limited as they would be if we were in the same room!).
We are really enjoying running our recent webinars. It is a great way to share knowledge and keep in touch with the Lone Worker Live Community.
The feedback we are receiving is fabulous and we are thrilled that people are finding the webinars both informative and enjoyable. We have had well over 1000 people grab and cuppa and join in over the past few weeks.
