WHO ARE LONE WORKERS

A definition of a lone worker is generally described as an employee working in isolation from others or without direct supervision. However, determining if you’re a Lone Worker can sometimes be tricky. There are many different factors that might not be apparent that classifies you as a lone worker.

 

CANADIAN LEGISLATION OF EACH PROVINCE AND TERRITORY

In Canada, each province and territory sets their own legislation for Health and Safety, which often includes provisions for Lone Workers. In principle, this helps each province and territory address the needs of Lone Workers in a way that takes into consideration the unique economies and climates, but quite often it means that some Provinces and Territories lag behind others in having strong legislative requirements.
