Home Office Safety and Security Week

It is Home Office Safety and Security Week and Pond Lehocky wants to help employees stay safe while working from home (WFH). The he law firm has outlined what you can do to prevent a work injury at home:
  • Take breaks to get up, stretch, move your legs and refocus.
  • Make it a goal to get 30 minutes a day of activity and/or dedicated exercise.
  • Drink at least 64 oz. of water a day. Hydration is key for mental and physical wellbeing.
  • Set up a designated ergonomic workstation and ensure that your work area is free and clear of clutter to prevent any injuries.
  • Make sure your smoke detector is up-to-date and working. Safety equipment like fire distinguishers and first aid kits are helpful to keep in your house to prevent any issues or accidents.
  • Homeowners insurance is a smart way to keep your property covered in the event of any damage while at home.

People who are injured while working from home are eligible to receive workers’ compensation, which is a benefit provided to employees who sustain injuries while performing work-related tasks. While workers’ compensation has historically helped protect people working in dangerous jobs, it has expanded to cover employees getting injured anytime while on the job. Many people working on the front lines—including nurses, doctors, and construction workers—are high at risk for injuries. However, the masses who continue to work from home are still susceptible to common tele-commuting injuries.
