As the UK begins to ‘unlock’ it is likely that homeworking will stay in place for some time to come.
Employers are responsible for the safety of their employees even if they are working from home. The Health and Safety Executive has created a guide for employers, including advice on managing stress and mental health.
In addition, please take a look at some useful guides and factsheets for you and your employees.
