Look after your Employees working from home in these unprecedented times!

As an Employer, you have the same Health & Safety responsibilities for your Employees even if they are working from home. Many Employees have been asked to temporarily work from home – here are a few things you must consider:

How will you keep in touch with them?

Can their work activity be done safely?

Do you need to put control measures in place to protect them?

Employees working alone are more at risk as they have no direct supervision or anyone to help them if things go wrong. Keep in regular contact with them to ensure that they are healthy and safe. If contact is poor, Employees may feel isolated or abandoned and this can affect their stress levels and mental health. Put procedures in place so you can keep in direct contact with your Employees – Look after your people and they will look after you!
