I'm not sure on the rules but is it alright for the supervisor to send an apprentice to work alone on jobs they can handle?

Answers all my questions
Also, have a read of the Supervision guide.
That is very clear and helps confirm what I'd been thinking was right; in essence, a Supervisor can be at a distance, as long as they are confident that the apprentice can handle a task
Also different absolute limits of work; set in the Act

Some people pick things quite easily, others not so.
Those are the people that need to be supervised well.
There was an apprentice a few years back found dead in a trench with a set of Duspols beside him, when he was working on an underground cable.
This is why we have supervision rules.
