While it might be creeping up into the one year mark for working from home, new research has found that lots of us still don't have a proper set up, which could lead to both physical problems and mental well-being issues.
In a poll carried out by office and technology manufacturer Fellowes Brands, 49 percent of participants say that they are without a proper home work station since being forced to work from home due to the pandemic.
Other results include more than a third of workers feeling stressed and isolated. Also, over one in four suffer from strained eyes, stiff neck, sore or aching back and headaches.
10 percent admit to working from their sofa, five percent from their bed and three percent on the floor. However, slacking certainly isn't an issue as 47 percent report logging longer hours when working from home than in the office.
Fellowes Brands is calling on the public and employers to act now to future-proof their health as home working legislation lacks clarity.
Health and safety experts urge employers to collaborate with their employees, take action and ensure home workstation risk assessments are completed to identify potential issues and commitment needs.
