New resources support health and safety while working from home
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many workers are working from home. To support this, we have two new resources to help employers and workers reduce the risk of injury in a home workspace.
Working from home: A guide to keeping your workers healthy and safe supports employers in developing a health and safety policy for working from home. It also outlines some useful tips and other resources to help you ensure the health and safety of your workers.
Setting up, organizing, and working comfortably in your home workspace is an information sheet that can be shared in a staff meeting or featured in a newsletter. This handout provides ergonomic tips to help avoid strains and sprains, and gives practical advice on setting up and organizing a workspace that is designed for comfort and safety.
