Every person, regardless of their job has the right to work in a safe environment, how that looks can vary from role to role. As an employer it’s a moral and legal responsibility to provide a safe and healthy working environment for all employees.
Ensuring you are meeting your legal obligations is important and assessing potential risks in the workplace is imperative, but how do you know if you are doing it properly?

The World of OH&S has Evolved
Life as we know it has changed. COVID-19 has claimed lives, it has changed our way of living, and as restrictions are lifted we will start to see the way in which we operate in the workplace needs to adapt to ensure everyone remains safe and healthy.
With the added pressure of COVID-19, making sure you are implementing safe and legally compliant procedures in the workplace has become more complicated.
How has COVID-19 changed the way we do business, and how might that affect the workplace procedures?
We need to consider the following;
- Implementing social distancing with both employees and customers.
- Creating barriers to prevent the risk of spreading COVID-19.
- Change how you operate to ensure your staff are protected by implementing flexible work arrangements from home where possible.
- Focus on maintaining a cleanly working environment.
- Provide instructions to employees on their duties and responsibilities to keep risk at bay.
- Provide adequate PPE equipment where needed.
- Provide adequate amenities for maintaining high levels of personal hygiene.
