Looking after yourself – working from home

As many colleagues continue to work from home for the majority of their working week we would like to remind everyone that there is guidance to support you and to ensure you work in the best environment possible.  Please read the guidance on working at home and complete the self-assessment in the guidance.

The self-assessment should be returned to your manager, to agree anything necessary to support you to work safely from home.

There is support  available from the Health and Safety team (DCHST.staysafe@nhs.net) for all colleagues and for managers who would like to discuss any completed risk assessment.

At present we do have some Kits comprising: ‘mouse, compact keyboard and laptop riser’ for anyone who requires a kit for working at home who haven’t already been given a set previously.  To request a kit please contact the Health and Safety Team on DCHST.staysafe@nhs.net.
