Are you waiting to reopen your business due to COVID-19? When employees return to work, social distancing guidelines and policies are a must. Government guidelines will help keep your workplace safe and reduce health and safety risks.
One way of getting ready is conduct a risk assessment, this will help you get your business ready to welcome back staff.
Risk Assessment in the workplace
As an employer, are you ready to change areas of your business to minimize health risks? A risk assessment can include.
- How many people are present?
- What is the duration of their contact and the distance between them?
- How much can activities be modified to reduce risk?
It is important to remember; employees have the right to refuse unsafe work. And the Occupational Health and Safety Act requires employers to provide a safe workplace.
