Many businesses are now instructing workers to remain home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you are allowing your employees to work remotely, you remain responsible for their health and wellbeing whilst working from home.
While your worker may not be physically present in the workplace, your business may still be liable for any injuries that are aggravated by, or sustained whilst an employee is working from home.
The employee will join a private and secure online platform using a dedicated link (in line with AHPRA privacy guidelines). One of our allied health professionals will ask a series of questions and conduct a visual examination of the at-home work environment.
Work Health & Safety Checklist
All businesses should have a Working from Home Policy in place. Any employee who has been asked, or has requested to work from home should also complete a Work Health & Safety Checklist. Our providers will go through this checklist with the employee.
General health and wellbeing check
The provider will discuss any health or wellbeing concerns with the worker and may recommend further programs. Diet, nutrition and hydration can also be challenging to manage, which can lead to lower productivity or further health complaints.
Work area assessment
Employees working from home are at higher risk of musculoskeletal issues such as neck and shoulder pain. We often also see an increase in lower back pain and disc issues, brought on by incorrect posture whilst working from the couch or unsupportive chair. Our providers will review the at-home work environment.
Providers will deliver a recommendation on how to set up the at-home work environment to ensure injuries are avoided.
