University launches app for staff members working alone on campus

The University has developed a lone working app designed to aid those working alone on campus, complementing existing policies and codes of practice.

The app has been designed to provide managers with basic information about colleagues working alone to ensure that they are safe and healthy whilst doing so.

In addition, it allows the individual to request emergency assistance should they need it. 

Instructions on how to download the app and use it can be found on the Health and Safety website.

The University’s lone working policy and code of practice can be viewed by clicking on the links below:

As stated in the policy, no work should start until a suitable risk assessment has been completed and approved.

For more information, please email and use ‘Lone working’ as the subject title.

Please note that only approved essential workers are allowed on campus currently and this lone working app does not negate that process.
