Download our ergonomic best practice employer and employee guides for home workers
Our latest research revealed that employers are overlooking their home workers when it comes to ergonomic best practice.
58% of remote workers received no guidance from their employer on how to set up a workstation that supports healthy posture.2
With musculoskeletal conditions currently the second largest cause of sickness absence in the UK3, employers have a duty of care to look after the musculoskeletal health of all employees, including those who work from home.
In light of our research, we've created two ergonomic best practice guides for home workers with our physiotherapy lead - Stuart Nottingham.
Download both guides now for top tips and advice on keeping your home workers healthy. The handy employee version can also be given to remote workers to ensure that they are thinking about their own health and wellbeing wherever they are based.
We held a Twitter Q&A with Stuart Nottingham, our physio lead, to answer questions about our research and the issues surrounding the musculoskeletal health of home workers. Join the conversation! Search for the hashtag #BHSFAskAPhysio on Twitter.
