RR262 - Health and Safety of Homeworkers: Good Practice Case Studies

HSE guidance on homeworking has been in existence since 1996. However, findings from a study conducted by the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) (O'Hara, 2002) indicate that both homeworkers and employers have not seen the guidance and are not familiar with health and safety legislation relevant to homeworking. HSE has stated that the existing homeworking guidance is now due for revision (Dempsey, 2001). The aim of this project was to provide case study examples of good practice in addressing health and safety issues, which could be incorporated into any revision of the HSE guidance on homeworking.
