Returning safely – your workplace

How premises can be made physically safer

As countries ease their lockdown measures and more employees begin returning to their workplace, this module looks at how premises can be made physically safer against the threat of Covid-19.

Focussing on real practical steps that businesses can put in place, this module looks at:

  • using the hierarchy of control as an effective means of preventing the spread of Covid-19
  • how an effective cleaning regime can prevent the spread, and
  • how each area within each workplace needs to be clean.

This module is designed to support existing risk assessments and will enable businesses to plan and implement a regime that will support the prevention of Covid-19.

We hope you can use this practical advice to keep safe and inform others about the precautions needed to return safely to workplaces following lockdown.
