Homeworking and Health & Safety: What do employers need to know?

Brought to you by Howes Percival LLP

Join our upcoming Health & Safety webinar Tuesday 13th April 2021.

Registration for this event is now closed.

About the event

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been an unprecedented need for people to work from home. For some businesses this required a dramatic shift in working practices and a steep learning curve for all involved. In some cases it forced businesses to work in a way which they never had before.

The government has issued its Roadmap and the stay at home order came to an end on 29 March. However, it seems that we, as a country, will not return to ‘normal’ working any time soon and there will be an ongoing need for some people to continue to work from home where they can and an increasing number of businesses looking to move to more flexible working long term – including allowing staff to work from home more regularly.

With more employers working to accommodate their home workers, we have seen an increased number of enquiries about the extent of the employers' obligations to provide IT and ‘office’ equipment for those workers and the related health and safety issues this new way of working may present.

On this webinar, Donna-Marie Helgeson, an Associate in Howes Percival’s Health and Safety team, will discuss the health and safety issues employers may need to consider when their employees are working from home and will address questions such as:

  • What is the law around home working and health and safety of home workers?
  • How do employers identify risks to the health and safety of home workers when they do not have access to the employees' homes?
  • How do employers manage risks to home workers' health and safety when the employer has no control over the home working environment?
  • What equipment are employers obliged, by law, to provide to home workers?

This webinar is designed for employers and those responsible for health and safety in their organisation. There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the session.

Please note, this webinar is focused on health and safety law and not employment law.
