The Importance of Home Working Risk Assessment

Did you know that when people are working from home, their employers have the same health and safety obligations towards them as they do when they're in the office?

Workers and their managers need to ensure they have put some thought into their home working environment. A risk assessment is a great way to start the conversation and set expectations.

The Importance of Home Working Risk Assessment


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

How do you support employees working from home?
You support employees working from home by making sure they have everything they need to take care of their physical and mental health. A risk assessment should take into account all of the possible health and safety issues that could arise and putting in place suitable control measures.
Do you need a risk assessment if you are working from home?
If you are working from home, you will still need a risk assessment to ensure a safe working environment. Employers have a duty of care towards all employees, wherever they work. Home workers are also likely lone workers, so they will need special consideration when conducting the risk assessment.
Is it healthy to work from home?
Done correctly, it can be healthy to work from home. In fact, many people find it lowers their stress levels and allows them more opportunities to exercise and eat healthily from the comfort of their own space. However, home workers face risks to their health and safety from DSE use, possible isolation and improper use of equipment.
