In this rough-cut video clip from a recent Lone Worker Personal Safety Training programme, our Director of Training and Keeping Lone Workers Safe expert trainer Gerard O’Dea discusses one important case where a lone worker was seriously attacked by a person who had issued threats to her – but the information was never shared by those who held it.
