New service supports health and safety of home workers

Napthens is offering a new dedicated service to support those employers who want to ensure their employees’ health and safety while working from home.

The Napthens HomeSafe home worker management system provides an online portal which guides employers through the steps to take to make sure their employees are working within health and safety guidelines and that they themselves remain compliant with Health and Safety Executive expectations.

Chris Walker, Head of Health and Safety at Napthens, said: “Many individuals have been thrust into a situation where they very quickly had to adapt to home working. This service provides more reassurance for the employer about the safety and wellbeing of their employees.

“We were already developing a broader online health, safety and employment management system but the current situation made it logical to roll out this service quickly to help employers now with so many people at all levels working from home.

“This system can be rolled out for any organisation, large or small and takes account of their number of employees and their management structure.”

The service includes video training on home work stations, risk assessment of display screen equipment, an asset register, health status, management access to HR documents, key contacts for teams, assigning of documents, health and safety hotline, HR hotline and updates on COVID-19.

Employers can trial the new service and then provide details of those employees who they wish to grant access.

The offering will be followed by a second portal which will offer comprehensive support services for health and safety, HR and risk assessments. For more information of Napthens’ coronavirus support, visit the COVID-19 Hub
