With Covid-19 lockdown measures easing in many parts of the world, you may now need to support the safe return to workplaces. This presents various challenges, especially with restrictions such as social distancing still in place. This online hub of advice and resources will help you navigate a safe path with guidance in our four Returning safely areas - safe people, safe workplaces, safe systems and safe equipment.
Our policy position
Health and safety must come first when considering restarting work during the Covid-19 outbreak, protecting workforces and communities and enhancing engagement and productivity.
For organisations, it’s about a systematic plan–do–check–act approach and forward-thinking employers have already been planning for safely restarting work, once allowed to cautiously do so.
