Protect homeworkers during the coronavirus pandemic

If you have people working from home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has advice for employers to follow. 

Issues employers  should consider include:

  • lone working without supervision
  • working with display screen equipment (DSE)
  • keeping in touch to recognise signs of stress and mental health problems

It should also be noted that employers must provide and pay for eye tests for any employees that are display screen equipment (DSE) users – workers who use DSE daily, for an hour or more at a time.

Visit the HSE website for further information.
