Copy and paste our model letter below
Dear [Insert manager's name],
Home working risk assessment
As my [individual/pregnancy] risk assessment or Government advice indicates that I should be working from home, I am formally requesting that a home working risk assessment is carried out, including a workstation assessment.
As my employer, under the Display Screen Equipment Regulations and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (or if in Northern Ireland, the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992), you are legally required to carry out an assessment of the risks from home working and implement a workstation assessment.
The following guidance will assist in the process:
HSE, Protecting home workers - http://www.hse.gov.uk/toolbox/workers/home.htm
If a risk assessment is not carried out within one week then I will be escalating this matter to the Royal College of Nursing.
I look forward to your response.
