Welcome to Lone Worker Safety Live…
If you are looking for guidance and advice on how to manage the safety, security and wellbeing of lone, remote or home workers you have found the right place.
Organised and hosted by Worthwhile Training who have well over 25 years’ experience in the field. The event is supported by the Health and Safety Executive and other well respected subject matter experts who have come together to help support businesses and workers with the challenges that lone working brings. You can be assured that all the information provided is backed by though research and real-life experiences from across many sectors.
The event on 11th October 2022 will be our first ‘live’ event since the beginning of the Covid pandemic and to say we are excited to be ‘back in the room’ is an understatement.
It will be a day full of opportunities to:
- hear from and ask your questions to, a great line up of experts
- take part in an interactive educational workshop
- chat to a select group of trusted sponsors and exhibitors
- network with like-minded people.
As this is a fully educational event, you’ll also get a full day CPD certificate! What more could you want?
Places are limited and as the lone working community have been waiting for a live event since 2019, we are expecting the day to sell out. So, pop over now to our registration page and make sure your name is on a seat.
A few quotes from previous 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”
Lone Worker Safety Live is the one event in the UK that focusses on the safety, security and wellbeing of remote and lone workers, bringing together experts with real world experience in an interactive and engaging way.

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.
