Course Introduction

When people are required to work from home, the comforts that are provided in an office environment can often be overlooked. Employees that will have had a practical desk setup that ensures their physical wellbeing and is designed to suit effective ergonomics will need to carefully consider how they can best replicate this situation in their home, which will not usually be adapted for this purpose.

Another challenge that is faced by organisations and their employees when working from home is the need to ensure that they maintain the same standards of information security and to make sure data is protected. Working from home can create security weaknesses that are exploited by cybercriminals , so it’s important to be aware of this and to take mitigating measures.

This Working Safely at Home e-learning course sets out to provide learners with all the awareness they need to create a home working environment that meets their physical safety needs through good management of their workspace and efficient use of display screen equipment. It also helps them to explore the extra security considerations they need to make, so that company data is protected.
