Are you working safely during coronavirus?
The fact that coronavirus cases are beginning to climb again is a stark reminder to us all that the pandemic is far from over.
That is why we all need to follow the correct precautionary steps to ensure colleagues and customers aren’t infected.
Many employees have returned to daily operations across the UK in the aftermath of lockdown but changes - big and small - have been put in place.
Hot desking has been all but curtailed and employees must now keep two meters apart. Handshakes have been forbidden while working hours are staggered to reduce the amount of people in the office at any given time.
These are just some of the changes at workplaces while some companies are even encouraging employees to work from home if they can.
There are 14 different guidelines when it comes to working during the COVID-19 pandemic, depending on your industry or circumstances.
