Home Working Risk Assessments
Organisations very often have employees working from home on a regular or permanent basis. This brings many advantages and efficiencies to the organisation and its employees.
Organisations need to bear in mind that the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act applies equally to staff working away from the office. That includes employees who spend only a short time home working.
To ensure that the employees home workplace is as free from risk as possible, it is important that organisations have a process in place to carry out home working risk assessments. This is all part of ensuring your employees health and wellbeing whilst working.
