Advice for Working from Home
The new work regime adopted by many of us now includes at least some “working from home” time. Our company offices may be planned ergonomic work spaces, but our home working environment seldom starts life that way. The kitchen table, the spare bedroom, whatever area we find to set up our laptop and dedicate to our work day, now needs an ergonomic assessment. Lacking the structure of a commute and hours of business, we must also design our work time commensurate with our mental and physical health requirements.
Here are a few tips our experts recommend for comfortable and safe home working: Tips for working from home
