Remote Workers Ergonomic Survey Results:

"Namely", an HR tech company, conducted an on line survey and found that almost 75% of remote workers felt that their employer should provide a stipend to help make their home office more ergonomically correct.

Almost half of respondents said their home office equipment was at least in part funded by their employer.

Respondents felt anywhere from $50 / month to a $1000 one time payment for office equipment and /or wi-fi was a fair amount for their employer to pay.

OSHA reminds us, even with remote work stations, in order to reduce the chance of injury, work tasks should be designed to limit exposure to ergonomic risk factors and engineering controls are one of the best way to do that.
