Whatever your business, you will be implementing measures to ensure your workplace meets the Covid-19 requirements.
It has always been a legal requirement to ensure the health and saftey of your staff and visitors. In light of the need to take additional steps to ensure your premises and work practices are Covid-secure, guidelines were released on the 11th May setting out what your business should do to achieve best practice.
The Health and Saftey Executive and Government have issued direction covering:
- Construction and other outdoor work
- Factories, plants and warehouses
- Labs and research facilities
- Offices and contact centres
- Restaurants offering takeaway or delivery
- Shops and branches
In essence, no industry is unaffected.
The implementation of Covid-secure requirements may require additional investment in infrastructure and training at a time when many industries will be getting back on their feet.
