Homeworking is becoming increasingly popular with advances in technology making it easier for employees to work remotely and flexibly. But, as an employer, how can you ensure that your workers are productive and safe when they are working from home?
Health and Safety legislation requires employers to make sure they do everything they can to keep their employees safe whilst at work, this includes those that work from home.
Furthermore, employees are still expected to comply with workplace policies and procedures even when they are working remotely.
In order to have a successful homeworking system in place, you must ensure that your guidelines are clearly communicated with workers, that you have fully trained them in all aspects of health and safety when it comes to homeworking and that you have assessed any potential risks.
