With the current situation, whereby many people are working from home, we have been asked a number of questions from businesses unsure about their duties.
Although your staff are not in the office, you still have the same duty of care towards them. In many cases you may find that you have extra things to consider such as the suitability of their workstation, insurance risks etc.
There are also extra risks to consider if you are considering reopening your factory or site in an attempt to return to as near as normal as you can.
So, this week I thought that I would look at these questions and try and guide you as to what you should do…
Coronavirus – Some questions being asked and our answers

Coronavirus (Covid-19) and Pandemic Awareness E-Course
This online eLearning course is the essential Coronavirus (Covid-19) and pandemic awareness training that has been developed to provide vital awareness for staff and employees of any business.
Using a combination of text, images, video and interactive content the eLearning course looks at how pandemics and epidemics are spread and the potential risks in the workplace as well as how to protect yourself from being infected. It includes the latest health advice for Coronavirus as well as the symptoms to look out for and what to do if you think you’ve been infected. Crucially, it also provides a practical video on how to wash your hands.
In addition, the course covers information on how viruses are transmitted and the control measures to take to reduce transmission and infection. It looks at high risk groups, isolation as well as the chain of infection.
Importantly, the online training course will help to minimise the impact to your business and staff. The information contained in the course provides advice on preventative measures and what to do if further action is required.
As with our CPD accredited courses the SCORM compliant Coronavirus (Covid-19) and pandemic awareness training allows businesses to quickly and easily deploy pandemic training to a workforce.
