    Home office must be included in RA&E

    Many employees have been working from home for over a year now and it is expected that after the coronavirus epidemic many will continue to work from home more often. For this reason, home offices must be included in the Risk Assessment & Evaluation (RA&E).

    Kitchen table

    The ‘Arbowet’ (Working Conditions Act) also applies to employees working from home. Therefore, the risks posed by home offices must be included in the RA&E as well as the corresponding plan of action. Moreover, you must also provide sufficient information to employees about a healthy working environment and the risks posed by an inappropriate workplace. Each home office must meet ergonomic standards with respect to its interior. Ergonomics should therefore be included in the RA&E. Related are the risks of injury posed by using less responsible facilities for work, such as a kitchen table. Working too long or too intensively, getting to little exercise and having the idea you must be available all day long should not be overlooked either. The latter is an example of psychological workload.

    Adjusting the RA&E to changes in the working environment

    In the following situations, the RA&E must be adjusted in any case:

    • a redesign of the offices;
    • a replacement of machinery or equipment;
    • an expansion of provided services or adding a new production line;
    • a major refurbishment, relocation or reorganization;
    • a drastic change in the tasks of employees.
