When considering remote or homeworking for an employee, it is essential that the manager visits the remote site: until the manager has checked it out, they cannot be sure that it will be suitable and will comply with the health and safety (for more information visit www. gov.uk[cross ref]) and quality standards that homeworking requires. This is one of the first and most important steps that the manager and remote worker need to take.
- To examine what will be needed for successful remote working
- To consider health and safety concerns
- To make a plan to set up the remote working site.
