Ensuring the power for your WFH set up is efficient and safe.
In the office each power unit follows the British Standard;
which reduces the risk of sockets being overloaded to keep
However, at home, the chances of an overload increase - 67% of
workers have been powering their workstations from extension
leads whilst working from home. Extension leads sold on the
high-street generally do not follow the same standards as the
ones in your office.
To stay safe when working in or out of the office, everyone
should be provided with the correct equipment to work safely.
When working at home remember to:
Use individually fused sockets
Do not power more than 6 sockets from one 13A wall socket
Power mobile devices via USB to lower the risk of overload
Keep your workstation tidy and free from messy wires
