Today’s dynamic businesses are finding that having a mobile and flexible workforce is key to providing the services that customers demand whilst giving employees the flexibility that a modern employer is expected to provide.
Home and mobile workers, however, provide new challenges for healthy and productive computer use. Laptops, in particular, are not designed with ergonomics in mind and the cramped keyboard often reduces the productivity of the user. In addition, the tethering of the screen to the keyboard also encourages poor seating posture increasing the risk of back and upper limb disorders.
Our mobile and home working colleagues are covered by the same DSE regulations as their office based colleagues, meaning that as responsible employers we have a duty of care to provide them with equipment that minimises the risk of developing conditions such as RSI whilst also improving their productivity.
Fortunately, we at Barry Bennett have selected a range of laptop and home worker solutions to ensure that your off-site employees are looked after. Contact Us for further information.
