That group is a section of the trade association, that covers the safety of the six million workers in the UK who already operate in isolation for some or all of their role. As the section says, changes to working practices in response to the Covid-19 pandemic mean many more people will now be required to work alone or without direct supervision, creating health and safety requirements for employers, from safeguarding and risk assessment to personal safety. The working group says that it will continue to ensure a coherent industry-wide approach.
Naz Dossa, pictured, said: “I am delighted to continue Peoplesafe’s long-standing work with the BSIA and to be able to lead the lone working group during such an important time for the industry. The coronavirus crisis has mandated an unprecedented change in working practices and lone working procedures must now be high on many organisations’ priority lists. I look forward to working with colleagues from across the professional security industry to coordinate our approach to ensure more organisations understand the risks of lone working and are better prepared to support their employees in all working environments.”
