In Australia, the model WHS laws still apply if workers are required to work somewhere other than their usual workplace, for example, from home.

What an employer can do to minimise risks at a worker’s home will be different to what they can do at the usual workplace. 

FTMA Australia has also created a “Working From Home Checklist” as a guidance tool. Please note, the considerations on the checklist should be seen as minimum requirements only. Employers may have more detailed working from home guidance in their organisations that should be used in conjunction with this checklist.
