Webcast - How to set up your home office presented by Dohrmann Consulting


Suddenly, most legal professionals are working from home, and many for the first time.

Is your work setup at home as good as it should be in this new world? What about your staff?

In this 30-minute interactive webinar, Ted Dohrmann (Certified Professional Ergonomist, engineer and ALA member) of Dohrmann Consulting will demonstrate and explain the key steps you should follow to set up a safe, comfortable and productive home office.

He will discuss chair choice and setup; desks/table selection; desktop equipment layout and positioning; breaks; laptops; lighting; and where to go for free resources.

Ted will also touch briefly on OHS duties as they apply to remote work; what the employer standard of care looks like in practice, and relevant regulator guidance.

Attendees will receive a supporting two-page guide on how to set up a home office.
