Frequently asked questions

As an employer, you have the same health and safety responsibilities for people working at home as for any other worker.
You must make sure your risk assessment covers home workers. It is important to keep a balanced and proportionate approach for home workers. In most cases, you do not need to visit them to ensure their health and safety, but you should make sure they have a healthy and safe environment to work in.
People who are deprived of social contact through work can feel isolated or disconnected, bringing on pressure and stress or aggravating pre-existing mental health problems. There are many things you can do to protect staff wellbeing, such as talking to them to understand their feelings and acting on them, making sure that staff have a good work/life balance, provide MHFA support or Mental Health and wellbeing training.
You must protect your workers from health and safety risks from working on a computer or laptop (display screen equipment or DSE) at home. They can complete a self-assessment provided they have been given suitable training. Where workers use DSE in the home and office, your assessments should cover both situations.
