COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Health, safety and wellbeing

Employers have a duty of care to do what they can, within reason, to protect staff from COVID-19. These include communicating the Department of Health’s hygiene and self-isolation guidelines to staff and knowing which of your staff has a higher risk of serious illness from contracting the virus.

Working from home and in the workplace

Introducing work-from-home setups wherever possible, varying shifts/breaks or flexing hours to reduce staff contact and splitting up offices, and holding meetings online to reduce physical proximity will all help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

These difficult times will also have an effect on the mental health of you and your staff, and there are resources to help. Our expert Health Safety and Wellbeing team has put together some videos to help support yourself and staff through this time. Check the videos out here
