Mark Littlejohns looks at some of the steps organisations should consider in order to protect those who may be affected by their activities.
As there is currently no formal end to the government’s restrictions on work and travel, it is likely that when we do return to work from lockdown, we will have to deal with social distancing for the foreseeable future. As the timing and nature of any relaxation of restrictions are uncertain, it makes sense for employers to plan now for what is likely to be a phased return to the workplace—assessing current arrangements and considering what additional controls may be required.
Organisations will need to protect staff, customers, and others who may be affected by their activities by looking after their safety, health and wellbeing. Many people will be concerned and anxious about being in or travelling to places of work and will want to know what their organisation is doing to support their physical and mental health.
