Working from home, telecommuting, is a perk for employees and has significant benefits to the employer. However, with these benefits come additional risks. One such risk is injuries to workers that are ergonomic in nature.
Is the employee’s home office the kitchen table or the breakfast nook or a kitchen island or a lap desk while on the couch?
The best way to significantly reduce the potential for ergonomic injuries is to set the home office up correctly based upon the individual employee.
