Working alone applies to work or study occurring when no other person is in direct line of sight or within hearing range of the person working. A person may work alone in a lab, office, shop or other University location, or in the field. Working alone can take place during normal working hours, as well as on evenings and weekends.

Use the Working Alone Safely Focus Sheet as a guide for pre-task planning to identify and assess the risks and safety measures needed.
