Managing home workers' health and safety

Employers have the same health and safety responsibilities for those working at home as any other worker.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) home working guidance is for anyone who employs home workers, including those who split their time between their workplace and home (sometimes called hybrid working).

The guidance has been redesigned and expanded to provide more detail on straightforward actions to manage home workers’ health and safety.

This includes the risks of working with display screen equipment (DSE) at home as well as stress and poor mental health.

There is also advice for home workers themselves, as well as a video and practical tips on good posture when working with DSE.
