How to stay safe when working remotely from home

Safety at home is paramount when setting up a home office.  From the cables on the floor to the desktop clutter, we can assist with products to create a safe working space that are also approved for use in the domestic market. 

PRODIGY will tidy those cables and more importantly get them off the floor.  ARC-H wireless charging eliminates the charging cable for most newer mobile phones.  PLUTO and PIXELTUF will provide TUF USB fast charging and power to the desktop, eliminating extra cables running from desktop to the floor.

Whether for your own home office or for your team members who are working from home, OE Elsafe can assist with the “WFH” office set up ensuring a safer working environment. 

Stay productive when working remotely from home.

OE have compiled the following list of tips, so that you can stay safe and productive whilst working from home.

Dedicated workspace

Create a dedicated workspace that is both safe and free from distractions.  The extra time that you spend setting up your workspace is an investment in your safety and productivity. 

Inform your family about your schedule

Inform family members of your schedule; if you let them know when you will be in a meeting, they may be less likely to interrupt. Alternatively, try downloading and printing off our door sign.

Distance from the noise

You may find it challenging to separate your home and work life when all that you can hear is the soundtrack of a hectic house. Try to distance yourself from the chaos with a pair of noise-cancelling headphones – you can buy them online for under $50.

Maintain a routine

When there’s no one to go to lunch with it can be tempting to have a working lunch; however, this will likely impact your productivity later on in the day.

Stay social

Try messaging your colleagues on your lunch break to keep your routine. Many co-workers may be feeling isolated also and by making a small effort to keep in touch you may brighten both theirs and your day.

Maintain your physical and mental health

When working from home life can very quickly start to feel like groundhog day. Make an effort to maintain your mental and physical health. Enjoy a lunch break, take a lunchtime walk, talk with colleagues.  There are lots of great free apps to help with this, such as Calm and Smiling mind.
