||HSE guidance on home working has been in existence since 1996. However, findings from a study conducted by the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) indicate that both homeworkers and employers are unaware of the guidance and are not familiar with health and safety legislation relevant to home working. HSE has stated that the existing home working guidance is now due for revision. The aim of this project was to provide case study examples of good practice in addressing health and safety issues for incorporation into the revised HSE guidance on home working. It involved the interviews of 28 homeworkers employed in 12 organizations from various sectors of activity including textiles, packaging, assembly, electronics, business services and computing.
