The unprecedented situation that COVID-19 has created in Ireland has meant more employees than ever have been asked to work from home. Many employees will never have experienced working outside of the office and these employees should know how to protect themselves from injury and ill health during this time.
The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, places certain legal duties on employers and employees to ensure a good standard of health and safety in the workplace. This includes when the employee is working from home.
With this in mind, our team at Legal Island have launched a brand new Protecting Yourself when Home Working in Ireland eLearning course.
What does this course cover?
This course was designed specifically for organisations who have employees working from home.
Topics covered within the course include:
+ The importance of health and safety when home working
+ Your responsibilities under health and safety law
+ How to protect your physical health while home working
+ How to protect your mental health while home working
+ How to work together to protect each other
+ Common household hazards to watch out for
The standard rate of this course is €40 per staff member, however, given these exceptional times, we have reduced the price of this course to €10 per staff member (for a limited time only).
