Working From Home course


This online Working from Home course is important because employers have the same duty of care to home workers as they do all other employees.
The online Working from Home course aims to provide both employers and employees with clear and relevant information about home working and health & wellbeing generally, and also with specific reference to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.  
While beneficial for lots of reasons, home working also presents various challenges.  These include for management and supervision, communication, and numerous diverse working environments.  
The number of employees now working from home because of the coronavirus pandemic is unprecedented, and on a global scale.  For many staff, this massive change to working practice will have happened abruptly.  It may be their first experience of working in the way, and against a background of  wider concerns about health, loved ones and the future.
At the same time as helping employers meet their obligations to staff, Working from Home provides employees with useful and reassuring information they can use to work safely and effectively from home, now and into the future.   
If you wish staff to complete their own risk assessment as part of Working from Home,  you can purchase this alternative version of the course.
