Out of sight, out of mind?
This study focuses on how effectively managing the health, safety and wellbeing of remote workers. This research was done by University of East Anglia, Kingston College and Affinity Health at Work. The project also implied the development of a toolkit for managers and practitioners including a range of informative and user-friendly tools (checklist of hazards and risks, information about barriers and facilitators, case studies and top tips, and an OSH practitioner self-reflection framework)
In this particular project researchers at the University of Southampton analysed the risk of workplace injury arising from common health conditions treated by taking prescribed medication.
