If you go to the RSSB website, the duties of the Lookout are detailed in Handbook 3.
If the work group were doing packing with a kango , then the operator and lookout would be wearing ear defenders. The lookout would either be looking at the distant lookout (if provided due to sighting restrictions), or for oncoming trains themselves.
For a short duration job, the erection of reduced speed boards is impractical, besides how do you protect the staff putting out the boards.
