Expert:  Ben Jones replied 5 years ago.
I see your point but this is not a legal requirement. Otherwise any slightly risky job that is done by one person at a time would require two people working together and that would not only be impractical but also unreasonable. In these circumstances the employer would only be required to ensure two people do the same job if there is an obvious risk of injury or other problems occurring. So for example, if you had a medical condition, let's say epilepsy or were diabetic, then it may be reasonable to provide another person working on shift in case something happened to you. But you can't do that just in case something happens when it is not an identifiable risk.
