Welcome to Lone Worker Safety Live…
With the continued impact of the pandemic, our thoughts go out to all those individuals, families and businesses who are affected and to those who continue to support others through their work or volunteering.
Here at Lone Worker Safety Live we have been watching closely the UK Government Guidance on events and large gatherings.
Although we are still hopeful that we will soon see something like a return to normality, to ensure that we can run an event that lives up to our delegates expectations, we have taken the decision to move the next Lone Worker Safety Live to the 12th October 2021.
This was not an easy decision to make, however, in our third year as organisers and hosts, we are really keen to ensure that the event is given the very best opportunity possible to be a continued success.
On the 13th October 2020 (our original date) we will be delivering ‘virtually a conference’ which is FREE for all to join. More details of this appears in our news section so please hop over and register now.
We hope that you will be able to join us both virtually this October and in person as part of our community in October 2021.
In the meantime, please feel free to use our contact form or drop us an email direct at email@example.com Our experts are on hand to answer any of your lone/home/remote working questions.
Still the only event in the UK to focus on the safety, security and wellbeing of lone workers, this year we have launched our bright new name and branding, an expanded programme of activities throughout the year and an iconic venue as our new home for our next main event.
2019 began with a wonderful opening address from Barbara Hockey of the Health and Safety Executive and an announcement about a review of their Lone Worker Guidance. The conference continued with conundrums, thought-provoking insights, great practical advice, live drama-based training, powerful personal accounts and bucket loads of interaction with all our knowledgeable speakers and trusted exhibitors!
We are proud to invite the HSE back again to bring us all up to date with the key changes. Joining them will be another line up of engaging speakers (some new – and some who still have more to say!). You’ll also have an opportunity to pick the brains of our varied exhibitors and our panel of experts, all topped off with a wonderful Lord’s Afternoon Tea…did we mention our new home is also the Home of Cricket?
Take a look through the site for more information and then head to our registration page to book your place. Numbers of delegates will still be limited this year, so don’t leave it too late.
We look forward to seeing you!
A few quotes from last year’s delegates:
“The day was immense”
“I think you have found the winning formula and the day has found its mojo!”
“I wanted to go away knowing more than I did when I arrived, If I had left at lunchtime, I would have already comfortably achieved this!!”
“This event just gets better and better”
As well as some amazing speakers we are proud to be supported by well-respected organisations who share our passion for the safety, security and wellbeing of Lone Workers. Take a look at our sponsors page for more information about these wonderful people!
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.
