The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many companies conduct business. To mitigate the spread of the virus, more employees are now working from home than ever before.
Many companies have welcomed this change and have even leaned towards adapting the remote work culture for the long term. But even though remote work has provided many benefits for employees and employers alike, it also comes with its own set of risks and hazards.
A recent study conducted by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics found that people who work from home are just as likely to be injured or become ill on the job as those who work in an office setting. Unfortunately, these injuries often go unreported because people may not realize they have been injured or don’t know who to report the injury to.
