Home Worker




Home Worker Online E-learning Course

Most companies now employ staff that work within their own home environment, and with this in mind First Health and Safety have developed this online home worker course. The module specifically tackles the issues required on the potential risks associated with working in the home.  Remember if someone is working for you in their own home then as an employer you have responsibilities to their health, safety and welfare.

First Health & Safety’s home worker course will provide your staff with the up-to-date knowledge on hazards faced by homeworkers and current legislation, reducing potential for injury. It covers a range of essential safety topics such as the environment and working in the home.

Our home worker e-learning course will help employers and employees who work at home spot work related hazards and give them the knowledge with dealing with them in the correct way. Each year there are a number of accidents that relate to home working including the workers family and visitors. Factors such as there being children in the home can turn a small risk into a major one and it’s vital that employers address these risks. Our home worker e-learning course will help both employers and employees minimise these risks.
