Many employees now understand there are benefits to working from home and some want to continue; however, their workstation may not be ergonomically correct. Issues with pain and muscle fatigue, caused by a poorly designed workspaces, may arise and negatively impact the employee's comfort and productivity.
Having the home office assessed, will help minimize the risk of strain, pain, fatigue, and reduced productivity.
