Course Overview

With an estimated 4 million of us working remotely in the UK, the number of us doing our jobs outside the traditional office environment can only go up.

Whether it's in a home office, a working hub or even on a train, remote working can be very beneficial. It can offer greater flexibility and eliminate commuting. However, it can also bring new challenges.

Our Remote Working eLearning course enables employees and employers alike to make sure all workers are safe and healthy – wherever they choose to do their jobs.

Course Contents

Your Remote Working online course is broken down into an introductory video and three modules. These are:

Home vs Hub
Home vs Hub
Meet two remote workers: David and Anaya. David works from home and Anaya uses a work hub. One of them is enjoying their experience and the other is experiencing problems. This module covers the importance of DSE risk assessments, regular breaks, staying connected and making positive changes to your routine when needed.
Road vs Rail
Road vs Rail
Emma and Tyler are employees who travel regularly for work. Emma spends hours alone driving to and from customer meetings; whereas Tyler's preference is to take the train. This module explores how employees can stay safe while travelling for work, from making sure your vehicle is fit for use to keeping data secure in public places.
Personal Safety
Personal Safety
People who work in the community or make home visits can be exposed to personal safety risks. Lone working is particularly risky – when it’s not possible to take a colleague with you, it’s important to take other steps to maintain contact with your workplace. This module covers car crime, dynamic risk assessments and emergency procedures.

The Importance of Remote Working Training

Millions of us already work outside standard workplaces, either in our homes, in the community, in co-working spaces or on our travels. Employers are increasingly seeing the advantage of remote workers and staff often enjoy the freedom to work flexible hours and avoid rush hour traffic.

With this trend set to increase dramatically, it's important to learn about remote working and how to protect your health and safety.

How do I adjust to working remotely?
Beginning to work remotely can be a big adjustment, despite its benefits. You can ease the transition by communicating regularly with colleagues, settling into a routine that separates work from leisure time and creating a workspace that is comfortable and conducive to work. Set reasonable expectations for the hours you are available for work and stick to them.
What is a workstation assessment?
A workstation assessment ensures the health and safety risks of a working environment are low, especially in relation to its DSE. This needs to take place to make sure remote workers are not at risk of any health and safety issues and needs to be taken just as seriously as an office-based workstation assessment.
What is the difference between remote working and home working?
Although often used interchangeably, there is a difference between home working and remote working. Remote working is a broader term covering anyone who conducts their job away from a fixed workplace, regardless of whether or not this is their home. Travelling might also be a key part of their role.
