What safety measures are in place for lone working?
For any business, ensuring employees' safety is always a primary concern. However, for those who manage remote workers the elements of risk can be elevated thanks to both the fact that, should an issue arise, they may be unable to summon help, and the fact that, as a result of being alone, they can be more susceptible to risks such as accidents or violence.
