Course description

Government guidance states if employees can work from home, they should. Employers should be mindful that they have the same health and safety obligations for home workers as for any other worker.

Organisations who fail to fully consider home workers as part of their health and safety risk assessments could find themselves under scrutiny and potentially face sanctions from their regulators, be exposed to employer liability claims and, in the worst case scenario, even face criminal sanctions under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.

This short webinar aims to provoke thought and will consider some of the key areas which will need to be taken into account as part of the home working considerations from display screens to fire safety and more.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Following all MBL courses, a certificate of attendance will be provided for those who are required to evidence their CPD activity to a professional body.

This short webinar aims to provoke thought and will consider some of the key areas which will need to be taken into account as part of the home working considerations from display screens to fire safety and more.
