It’s been over a month since the UK entered lock-down in a bid to slow the spread of the deadly novel coronavirus, and we still have no real indication of when it will end. Yet even though the days are slow and long, the time has passed by quickly. There’s no escaping it, the world has changed. The way of life that we once took for granted is gone and has been replaced by something altogether different. Gone are the warm embraces of friends, the casual coffees and the long lunches. And in their place, we have Zoom meetings, virtual pub quizzes and regimented daily exercise. It’s all a little peculiar isn’t it?
With news of the outbreak and strategies to deal with Covid-19 changing on a daily basis, it is important that you have a policy in place providing boundaries, guidelines and best practice guidance for your employees
But we understand that as a business you may be feeling under pressure during these uncertain times. To support all businesses at this time we want to help by providing you with a FREE Coronavirus Policy template for your business.
As an employer, you have both a moral and legal obligation to your
employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSAW) – this
includes providing adequate protection for infectious diseases.
Regardless of this unprecedented situation, this law still stands and, if employers do not adhere, they could find themselves facing employment tribunals and criminal charge
Before you can get your employees back to work, you need to ensure that it is safe for them to return, and the best way to do this is to carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment. You don’t have to be a health and safety professional…
You don’t have to be a health and safety professional to be able to conduct a risk assessment, but as an employer, you do have an obligation to provide a safe and healthy working environment for all your employees.
