Working from Home
Assess who can do their jobs from home.
Give those workers the option to do so.
Provide guidance to your workers on how to set up a safe home work environment (see, for example, SWA’s working from home information and diagrams).
Require workers to complete a self‑assessment checklist to ensure they comply with good ergonomic practices (an example is Comcare’s working from home checklist).
Appoint a contact person in your business that workers can talk to about any concerns.
Set up ways to communicate with workers online (e.g. through Skype or Zoom) and communicate with them daily.
Provide information to workers about the supports available to them, for example through an employee assistance program
