The following guidance is correct as of writing (4th June 2020).
With some businesses returning to work and others awaiting more news from the 15th June announcement about the next phase of relaxation of lockdown, we are getting a lot of questions from our clients on how to prepare for the return to business.
Employers and those who are self-employed and work with or near other people will need to put a lot of emphasis on thinking about Health and Safety at the moment.
As an employer, especially, you must protect your employees from harm. This includes taking reasonable steps to protect your workers and others from coronavirus.
Over time, it is likely that you will have to adapt and change your plans for working safely during the coronavirus outbreak. But you need to make sure you have measures in place to update people as they are adapted and changed.
We’ve asked Andrew Price from Lighthouse Safety some questions about how you can protect your employees from coronavirus in your workplace and the considerations you need to make.
