You and your business can still be held responsible for injuries that happen in the home while carrying out work-related duties.
So, just as you audit your workplace for OHS issues, you must audit any home workspace used by you or your employees.
In most instances employees can do their own home OHS checks to to make sure their workspace complies with the guidelines you set.
Provide all remote-working staff with a copy of this checklist so they can assess their workspaces and fix any potential issues before they start.
