Working from home assessment

Post by Beatrix »

I’m after a favour :))

I don’t suppose anyone has a home working risk assessment form and could share it with me? I’ve managed to dig out an old company home working policy which refers to an assessment but I can’t find it - the policy outdates me and our H&S consultant is useless (he’s ignoring me).

Much obliged for any help.

Thanks Wendy. The ancient policy I have seems to refer to something a bit more involved and wanting to know about fire alarms etc. We've asked everyone to do a DSE assessment and I think that will suffice for now!

Yeah, there's some proper home working assessments you can (should) perform if you are employing people to specifically WFH but I think in the current situation, the key thing is their workstation assessment!

Yes, we’ve put a temporary HW policy in place so we’ll deal with the proper policy and assessment after this is over with.

Thanks Est, that’d be helpful.
