      The concept of Teleworking has been the subject of discussion and global study theme by researchers in the past ten years. Still, this global phenomenon begins to emerge at the COVID-19 attack and becomes an alternative strategy for many organzation. Assessing how health risks and benefits of telework are affected by its sudden, large-scale uptake in the context of COVID-19 is critical to best preserving occupational health. Threats emerging from working environments could debilitate the well-being and prosperity of the laborers. By applying an Inherent safety such as substitution, minimization, moderation, and simplification where the overall goal is to minimize the risk associated with office hazards that can lead to better working conditions. Therefore, this study aims to explore current issue and challenge faced by teleworkers to work safely in Klang Valley Area, Malaysia during COVID-19 pandemic. The main objectives of this study are to identify measures and management practices to make working from home safer for teleworkers. To collect the data, this study used questionnaire and case study analysis, the questionnaires were distributed to random population to understand the issues and challenges faced by teleworkers during work from home. The data was analyzed using Pearson’s Chi-square method with SPSS analytical tool software. Based on the analysis, the results shows that majority of the teleworkers didn’t have a separate room for working and equipment such as ergonomic table and power surge protector. In addition, Majority of the respondents were having a noise distraction, overworked, and inadequate training from the company. Finally, based on the results obtained from the analysis, a checklist was developed to assist teleworkers and organization to improve their work from home conditions. Given that many countries consider COVID-19 to be an endemic and the worker will begin transitioning to the office while still adhering to health protocol, this research will aid in the development of increased safety and health recommendations for teleworkers.
