Hazards and risks

The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the hazards and risks faced by distributed workers. It is not an exhaustive list of all the hazards and risks faced, but is information gained during the research. As such it may serve an aide-memoire to assist managers and OSH practitioners in considering the hazards and risks for differing types of distributed (or remote) work.

Remember that by distributed/remote workers we mean workers who spend all or part of their week working away from a main location.
