I don't know for certain, but I expect "work at home' employeees fall under
the scope of the employers "Workmans Compenstation" liability covrerage,
with regard to injuries sustained "on the job".

Now, consider what happens if the employee sustains an 'on the job' injury,
due to something in the 'workplace' (done by the homeowner on his own time)
that is _NOT_ "OHSA-compliant".

At that point, as it is sometimes put in U.S. Dept. of Ag. bureaucratese:

  'A large quantity of organic waste/byproducts forcefully impacted the
   high-speed rotary impeller."
