Dont be a statistic

Although out of hours (or ‘unplanned’) lone working may happen infrequently, it’s critical that it’s covered by a risk assessment. One common example is when the security or fire alarm goes off which then remotely notifies a key holder, often a more senior employee, board member or business owner. The person may then have to go to the workplace to check the building and reset the alarm. This is classed as lone working and the company has a duty of care to address the risks associated with a late night visit to premises where there may be an intruder in order to ensure their safety.
