Seating - how to sit more safely while home working
DISCLAIMER: The information contained within this section of our website is only intended as guidance on temporary measures at a time of great need as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The advice should in no way be taken as being enough to ensure that you can continue in the longer term to work from home in a suitable or safe manner. The same legislation that protects us in an office applies if we're working from home on a permanent or regular basis - but it may be a while before this kind of adjustment can happen.
DSE (Display Screen Equipment) assessments should be undertaken on at least a yearly basis with all employees and further assessment may be required if a basic DSE assessment identifies that the DSE user is at risk. Please contact your employer's Health & Safety representative to ensure that this takes place.
We're in the process of adding some content to this page - please check back regularly for some advice on how to find a more suitable temporary working position within your house.
