  • Working from Home

    An employee who either works from home or another premise that is not the workplace.

    Working from home is becoming increasingly popular. It is cost effective for employers and offers greater flexibility for employees who need it. Employers still have a duty of care to monitor the health, safety and general wellbeing of home workers. People who work by themselves at home could also be exposed to greater risk.

    It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure the proposed work environment is safe; that it uses compliant and ergonomical equipment, as well as has no risk of physical hazards.
