Health & Safety Tip
Assess the risk of returning to work after Covid-19 lockdown!
Over the next weeks and months many of us will be planning to return to our workplaces after the Covid-19 lockdown. Remember that there will be a high degree of reservation and concern from employees about being asked to return to the workplace. Many of our colleagues would prefer to remain at home on furlough leave giving them the benefit of protecting their own health and protecting the health of their immediate families. However, it is vital that we get the economy back on track for each of us to survive in the long-term.
Please do not forget to do your risk assessment before asking anyone to return to their workplace.
