Telecommuter Home Office Hazard Assessment & Inspection Checklist

While not an OSHA obligation, it’s highly advisable to take measures to protect the health and safety of telecommuting lab employees who work from home. How? By having employees seeking approval to telecommute designate a room or area as their home workspace and arranging for somebody to perform a hazard assessment inspection to verify that the workspace is safe, healthy and appropriate for the proposed use.

  • Option 1: Have a lab supervisor or manager visit the site and do a physical walk-through inspection;
  • Option 2: Have the employee videotape the space and/or submit detailed photos and a floor plan and do the inspection virtually;
  • Option 3: Have the employee inspect the space himself/herself.

Whoever does the assessment should use the Checklist below.
