Q: If I have employees who work at home, are there things I must do about there home safety too?  

In a national news release issued February, 2000, OSHA indicated it will not inspect home offices and will not expect employers to either. However, the agency will follow-up on complaints involving potentially hazardous factory work being performed in the home. Examples include assembling electronics, using unguarded crimping machines, or handling potentially hazardous materials without adequate protection.
