Running a business is always associated with risks, whether it is a large organisation or a small to medium business. As the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic continues to test employers across New Zealand, special consideration needs to be given to the safe management of any distributed workforce.
The move to home or remote workplaces comes with obligations and responsibilities for both employer and employee – not the least of which is health and safety. This eBook will walk you through:
- Health & safety for remote employees: Who’s responsible?
- The risks: What they are and how to deal with them
- Rules to play by: A summary of the key legislation that applies to remote employees
- How to stay compliant in a challenging post-pandemic world
With remote working likely to continue for the foreseeable future as employees and employers grapple with ‘hybrid’ work arrangements, this eBook covers the important areas employers and HR managers need to be across to ensure the health and safety of their remote employees across New Zealand.
