How can you ensure your hybrid homeworkers are safe?
After the effects of Covid a new expression was coined that of hybrid working - the ability to work from home. Many of us used to go into offices and maybe hold a day at home. According to the home office statistics around one in seven working adults worked from home exclusively between 27 April and 8 May 2022, while nearly a quarter (24%) both worked from home and travelled to work.
With so many of us working from home how do we as employers ensure our workforce are still working safe?
Indeed with 24% working both from home and travelling for work, how do we capture any incidents and accidents or near misses in real time?
What’s the Risk?
With Health & Safety still being a larger risk of claim and court action than Employment Law it really does makes sense to look at this seriously. When money becomes tight, compliance can go slip by the wayside.
Many people still have the effects of what is coined ‘psychological safety’. These are effects caused from trauma through a prolonged time of fear, whilst having to deal with various difficult situations. It is no surprise that we are hearing a lot of news around mental health and wellbeing. So how will you know that employees are feeling well or having some unwell feelings around safety, whilst at home alone?
As responsible employers we care about our staff and ensure we have all the tools to support engagement, inclusion, and wellbeing. After all, happy staff make for a performing organisation.
