As an employer, you have a duty of care to protect anyone affected by your business activities. Whether your business is operating fully or partially, or for when the time comes for your employees to return to work, it’s vital that you take all of the necessary precautions to safeguard them from Coronavirus (COVID-19) whilst they are at your place of work.
To help you pinpoint any foreseeable hazards within your workplace and produce a plan to eliminate and control said hazards, we’ve put together a Workplace Health and Safety Guide. The guide sets out the main elements required to prepare your business for your employees to be able to work safely:

- Identifying people at risk
- Examining the working environment
- Collating the information, assessing the risk and establishing safe systems of work
We have also provided a number of practical checklists and templates to help you form your plan and ensure that your workplace is safe for your employees to return to work:
