The University is required to comply with advice and direction from government agencies. This includes the need for some staff to work remotely away from the University’s campuses and we are therefore providing the following guidance.
Wherever possible, staff are asked to test in advance that they are able to work from home - for example, that they have suitable equipment, a VPN connection and access to passwords. Line managers should support colleagues in ensuring that this is possible.
To comply with our responsibility to conduct risk assessments for all work activities, we require all colleagues who are currently working from home to complete a home working assessment form. After completion, you will receive a copy of the form via email. The Health and Safety team will contact you and your line manager if there are any actions to take.
