If an employee works at home, the Display Screen Equipment Regulations do apply and a home workstation is subject to the same requirements as that of an office employee. The risks associated with computer use apply whether an employee is based in the office or at home and therefore a workstation assessment should be carried out.
Full-time and permanent homeworking is subject to the provisions of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (Management Regulations), which mandate employers to conduct hazard assessments for homeworkers.

In addition, it is crucial to provide training for homeworkers to enable them to mitigate risks effectively. Our assessment options, available both onsite and online, include training sessions on posture and workstation setup.
