New working from home WHS guidance published

Safe Work Australia has published new resources on managing WHS risks when workers are doing computer-based work from home.  

WHS laws apply when workers work from home just as they do in traditional workplaces such as offices. Working from home may change WHS risks or create new ones. Safe Work Australia’s new materials provide practical guidance on how to meet WHS duties when workers work from home.

The resources include information sheets for PCBUs and workers, a checklist to help identify common hazards which may be present when working from home, and a workstation set up infographic.
