Assessing The Risk of Lone Workers
While it's true that there is no law that prevents an employee from working alone, it's always important to understand as much about this type of situation as you can. From an employer's perspective, you are subject to certain rules and regulations that require you to create the safest possible environment for that employee at all times.

In the event of a potentially violent situation, the lone employee would need to find a way to communicate with others to help navigate the situation safely.

And more.
