Webinar: Supporting Ongoing Homeworking

0.00

NISO is facilitating and promoting this free on-line webinar hosted by the Northern Ireland Safety Group (NISG).

Supporting Ongoing Homeworking
Monday, 26 October 2020; 14:15 – 16:00hrs.

Speaker: Katharine Metters
Lead Consultant at Posturite. She has a degree in ergonomics, is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and a Chartered member of IOSH.

It began by millions of us having to work from home almost overnight. For some this was just temporary but research has now shown that working from home is expected to double following the coronavirus pandemic. For many the future will most likely be a blend of home/office work and this presents new implications for health and safety that employers now need to consider.

This is a free webinar, however, registration is required. Participant numbers are limited so book your place now.
