Safely Working From Home Working

Safely Working From Home

Working from home presents several new safety and health challenges, including additional stress on our bodies and minds. Common concerns include:
Not having ergonomically designed workspaces at home, leading to increased risk of musculoskeletal injuries.
Balancing work life with home life, including sharing technology with family.
Working longer days with shorter breaks.
Increased anxiety due to COVID-19.

In this forum, we’ll discuss addressing ergonomic concerns into our home workspaces, managing stress while working remotely, and using mindfulness as a coping strategy.
