Working Alone Hazard Assessment

If employees who are working remotely are working alone or if the absence of several employees creates a working alone situation at the office, ensure that you follow all the appropriate Occupational Health and Safety Act guidelines and procedures for working alone. Establish regular contacts with your employees in both situations to monitor their health and safety while working. Encourage your employees to conduct a hazard assessment of their remote workspace to ensure safe working conditions.

While employees work remotely, approved work will be covered by WCB insurance. If they get injured while working at home, they must follow the injury/incident reporting instructions and notify you.
