Cambridge Archaeological Unit: Lone Working


From fieldwork in far flung places, to lab work at weekends, to securing buildings at night, University staff and students may be working alone. Most of the time, these activities can take place without significant risk provided appropriate precautions are in place. But sometimes working alone can accentuate hazards or even introduce new hazards so the risks of lone working need thorough assessment and suitable control measures.

Target audience
  • University staff, students and college staff
  • Further details regarding OHSS’ eligibility criteria are available
  • To enable managers and supervisors to assess which tasks may be undertaken by lone workers, assess which may not, and decide on appropriate control measures, together with associated guidance produced by the Safety Office



College staff are charged £15 per participant, see charging for further information


One session of one and a half hours


A number of times per year
