Confused by all the Advice on Managing Home Working? “Yes”, is the cry we hear from many of our community, so as part of our commitment to support the Lone Worker Safety Live Community, we are proud to launch our first Free Webinar.
Home Working – Managing the New ‘Norm’
Ergonomics – A Holistic Guide from the Experts
If you are managing or supporting teams who are working remotely or at home (maybe for the first time), then this webinar is worth 45 minutes of your time.
16th April 11.00am
Working from home is less than ideal for many people in different ways. How many of your workers are sat at a kitchen table, on a sofa or at a child’s desk? How often are they taking a break? How are they feeling? How many of them are already suffering from neck pain, back pain, brain fog, etc.
This webinar brings together experts who can help you to understand the ergonomic risks of using remote technology in the home environment and will provide you with practical ideas to manage the risks. Our experts will also provide you with practical ideas on how to have those safety conversations in a way that can really make a difference
Numbers of attendees will be limited to ensure you have an opportunity to engage with our experts. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
