We recognise the burden and concerns caused to businesses because of the employment and financial implications of COVID-19. However, it is vitally important that organisations continue to address health and safety issues and prevent injury or ill health, not only in compliance with regulations, but also to reduce the burden on health services who may be under severe pressures dealing with COVID-19 cases.
You should continue to assess risk, and look at the application of current COVID-19 guidance and how this relates to the risks in your own workplace. It will likely warrant changes in certain practices, and where this is the case you should look at the impact on general risk control procedures and measures, reassessing them if applicable.
We will be providing regular updates, toolbox talks and risk assessments. Please check back regularly.
And if you have any questions please contact us.
