Working alone
Working Alone

  • Provincial legislation requires the employer to provide and implement a plan for any worker who is required to work alone. This plan must ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, the safety, health and welfare of a worker working alone.

  • In most cases, workers working alone will be performing “low risk” tasks.

Working Alone

  • Workers working alone in HSD must have a buddy system in place. This system requires any worker working alone to have a specified “buddy” and to call that buddy on a regular basis, at least every two hours – higher risk activities will require a shorter interval between calls.

  • Appendix D includes specific work alone guide lines for different employee groups.
