With the rapid onset of COVID-19, our global workplace had to quickly transition and adapt to working remotely. Employers swiftly responded to enable employees to work from home, but are they leaving themselves vulnerable to workers' compensation claims in the future? Since dining rooms have become desks and couches have become conference rooms - this is a great opportunity to remind employees that creating an ergonomic workspace and participating in regular exercise are important for their overall health and wellness.
Discover how you can support remote workers as they continue to work from home and as they prepare to transition back into a traditional office environment.  Key items for discussion, include:
  • Tips for creating a proper workstation at home
  • Stretches to keep your muscles limber as you work
  • How to prepare for returning to work
