Understand the extent and causes of staff muscular skeletal disorders (MSDs) and other physical health issues which stem from poor home workspace setup for employees working remotely 2 or more days each week.
Current office DSE / Ergonomics Assessments are an effective way to identify problems in the ‘company’ office but are not structured to uncover the number, or associated cost, of issues originating from (for example) staff working at home at breakfast bars or sofas in locations lacking privacy and open to distractions.
Our Home Office Assessments Service will help you understand the extent of the issues impacting employee productivity and wellbeing for all staff working from home on a regular, or intermittent, basis and will provide you with the insights and tools needed to resolve those factors having the biggest negative impact.

Assessment guideline principles
Review company strategy documents and policy statements related to remote working to uncover potential gaps, issues or best practice misconceptions.
Work with senior execs to develop a high-level strategy covering the business’ approach to remote working and home office setup, which covers all key factors including key remote working principles (security, safety, minimum broadband connection speed etc.), items down to manager discretion and budget allocation for home office equipment.
Compile revised / new policies aligned with the new strategy including transparency over the rationale behind decisions and changes in policy to get managers and staff on-board and supportive.
Keep a close eye on competitor strategies and policies regarding home working and spend allocated to the issue and, where possible, learn from their experiences and proven best practice.
Adapt Employee Surveys to monitor employee physical health issues specifically related to their workspace setup – both in the office and at home.
Identify trends and proactively adjust your policies and procedures to resolve potential problem areas before they become serious issues.
