Welcome to the iSMTA Lone Worker Training course. Lone workers may face many hazards during their working day, however many don’t have adequate training to deal with such hazards. Training is particularly important where there is limited supervision to control, guide and help in situations of uncertainty.Training may be critical to avoid panic reactions in unusual situations. Lone workers need to be sufficiently experienced and understand the risks and precautions fully.
Lone Worker Training Duty of Care
Employers should set the limits to what can and cannot be done while working alone. They should ensure employees are competent to deal with circumstances, which are new, unusual, or beyond the scope of training, for example how to handle aggression, or how to be more security aware. iSMTA has dedicated a lot of time in developing the first interactive lone worker training program combined with our partner Country Intelligence Platform (CiNPLAT) this course used in connection with the panic alarm systems and redefines Duty of Care of lone workers.
Course Aim & Length
This course has been designed by iSMTA and CINPLAT and forms the core competencies for lone working. This is the first time that such a professional lone worker course has the backing of an intuitive mobile application panic alarm system (CiNPLAT) to provide a comprehensive solution. The course is broken down into six Modules which are delivered through our professional Learning Management System (LMS). Each Module includes interactive taught content to guide you through the course and provide invaluable information, advice and guidance. There are also quizzes to evaluate your understanding, within the LMS you will also be able to access resources, such as a certificate of attendance, which maybe supplied to your Human Resources (HR) department as proof of attendance.
Unlike other providers iSMTA is an e-learning purist, in that all taught content that is delivered by one of our many Subject Matter Experts (SME) is a close resemblance to actually being in the classroom, but without all the costs and time constraints. This self-certifying lone worker training (Duty of Care) course delivered over one hour will enable you to apply some basic reasoning to make informed decisions as to your safety.
