Do your employees work art home or on a permanent or long-term basis?
Or do they routinely split their time between their workplace and home (also known as hybrid working)?
Whether your employees are currently working from home for some or all of the working week, it is vital their workplace is safe and comfortable for them.
HSE guidelines are now in place to protect home workers’ health and safety and employers must ensure they are being followed.
In recent years there has been a huge shift regarding location of work and the ways people work, mainly in the wake of the pandemic. The change has made better productivity for some business but not all in some sectors.
MOHS provides assessments for home workers, with our ergonomic assessments.
