When the Covid-19 pandemic spread rapidly in early 2020, businesses across sectors had to respond quickly. Some began remote working while others had to continue operating with full or reduced staffing on site. Others had to close down operations all together.
Whichever category a business fell into, the pandemic created many occupational safety and health risks.
As time moved on, some organisations were able to welcome staff back into workplaces, while ensuring they could provide a safe and healthy working environment.
However, the pandemic has continued to spread in parts of the world and management of Covid-related risks – and recovery – continues to be high priority for employers.
How did our members manage the occupational safety and health risks and how do they keep their workers safe and healthy?

“The safety of our colleagues is a priority. The challenge from a safety point of view is that all of the other risks are still there, but there are some new considerations to make.”
