Safety in a Remote Work Environment

OSHA has provided limited and conflicting guidance over the years as it relates to home-office safety for employees. It is important to understand what regulations apply and additional guidance available to employers to guide your decisions for ensuring employees are safe.

Key areas for us to explore are ergonomics; slips, trips, and falls; and fires and other emergencies in the home-office environment. As employers, you will need to consider how employees evaluate their work environments; provide employees with needed additional equipment; revise existing policies to accommodate home-office work, and provide relevant training for employees.
