Is your workplace ready to reopen safely?
As a business owner there are a number of business areas to consider prior to bringing your employees back into work.
Government guidance states that those that can work from home, should continue to do so, but those that need to travel to their workplace are encouraged to. A key consideration is how to modify your work setting to prevent the spread of the virus. The government has created a reopening tool to help employers check what their workplace needs to do to keep people safe which can be accessed here.
