Ergonomic Home Office Assessments
Working from home is now becoming a more common practice. However, employers still need to ensure the safety of their employees when working from home temporarily or permanently, and correct ergonomic set–up of the workstation should always be addressed prior to commencement of home-based work.
This assessment is recommended for all employees who work from home and should not be limited to those reporting discomfort or injury.
The ergonomic assessment is conducted at the employee’s home and where possible, adjustments are made using existing furniture. The employee will be provided with education regarding correct set-up of the workstation and chair adjustment. Where necessary, additional equipment will be recommended in a written summary report.
