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.

Confused by all the Advice on Managing Home Working? “Yes”, is the cry we hear from many of our community, so as part of our commitment to support the Lone Worker Safety Live Community, we are proud to launch our first Free Webinar.
If you are managing or supporting teams who are working remotely or at home (maybe for the first time), then this webinar is worth 45 minutes of your time.
Over the last few months, COVID-19 has swept across the nation leaving behind a trail of fear, confusion and uncertainty. All of our exhibitors are busy supporting their clients at these difficult times. We spoke to Don Cameron, CEO at StaySafe one of our new exhibitors this year and he shared with us some of the advice they have been sharing with their clients. As the advice is very practical and useful, we thought we would share it with you….
We have had some enquiries from Lone Worker Safety Live Community members who own small (and large) businesses, asking for advice on how to keep their properties (and businesses) safe whilst they are closed or working from home in social isolation.
Not strictly our area of expertise, we approached Mike White, Head of Risk, Compliance and Assurance for a major international security provider and Chief Inspector Patrick Holdaway of the National Business Crime Centre for some expert advice.
With no time for planning, many of us of have been thrown into home working and may well have ended up in less than ideal positions. Whatever your home office (or corner of the kitchen, sofa, garden chair, etc) looks like, it is important in these challenging times to make sure that we don’t create extra stress and strains on our bodies. Ed Milnes one of our expert speakers, shares his advice (after all ergonomics is his thing) on how to work and stay well in these challenging times.
In these uncertain times, so many more of us are now working from home and for the uninitiated this can be a real shock to the system. The responsibility to manage workers’ health, safety and wellbeing has not gone away. But where businesses do not have processes already in place, it may also be difficult for managers to ensure that they keep their remote workers safe, engaged and productive. Find Guidance here to help you through these challenges.
