Covid-19: Coronavirus – returning safely after lockdown and employers’ obligations

28 May 2020 12:30pm BST

In many parts of the world that have been in ‘lockdown’, organisations are now planning for or managing the implementation of staff returning to workplaces.

Employers have obligations to comply with health and safety standards set by governments and regulators worldwide, and they must understand and discharge their duties of care to employees and others against the backdrop of the current pandemic.

This webinar will address the common themes in returning to work, along with an overview of some key health and safety obligations, how this impacts on returning to work, the role of competent health and safety assistance, what extra adjustments may be needed and other important considerations.

Jason Anker - Overcoming seemingly insurmountable hurdles

Jason Anker was paralysed from the waist down due to an avoidable incident on a construction site in 1993 when he fell off a ladder. He was 24 years old.

For 27 years he was unable to talk openly about his experience of a work related major incident. This is reflected in a story that is very raw; the emotion in which he delivers his talk is as strong as if it was the day of the incident.

Jason's presentation will cover the story of his life before the incident, the day of the incident, the time spent in hospital and rehab, his initial release from hospital and his struggle with life over the last 27 years. Jason provides an honest and sometimes graphic account of the devastation the incident has had on him and his family and friends.

Morality and ethics in health & safety

This webinar will explore what are universally considered concepts of morality and ethics.

For years the health and safety industry have underpinned many of its strategies with the concepts of morality and ethics. Many have passively accepted these paradigms without actually clarifying what they mean and questioning the moral obligations which they appear to assign to us all. Should we be obligated to follow a rule that we have never explicitly agreed to? Does harm mean all harm or is it okay for some people to be harmed a little if the cost of avoiding the harm is too great? Of course, we have health and safety laws but is complying with a law necessarily a moral or ethical issue? These and other questions which will be explored and discussed by utilising the ideas and arguments of great philosophical thinkers, including Plato, John Locke and David Hume.
