Over the years, an increasing number of employees have begun swapping the traditional office space for the home workstation, with 50% of the UK workforce have been predicted to work from home by 2020. While the benefits of working from home are mutually exclusive for employees and employers alike – offering increased productivity, a better work-life balance and a reduction in overheads – there are a number of health and safety implications that need to be taken into account. The Work from Home e-learning course will explain the importance of health and safety legislation and procedures and how these translate into the home environment, with a particular focus on employee responsibility.
