Helping you protect your employees against COVID-19
The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) is the primary piece of legislation that requires all employers to have a duty of care for their employees. While COVID-19 can infect anybody, the elderly and those with long-term or pre-existing illness may experience more extreme symptoms.
The World Health Organization is advising people to practice good hand and respiratory hygiene to reduce the risk of infection. Avoid contact with anyone who has a fever and cough and ensure you frequently wash your hands using an alcohol-based hand gel, wash or soap.
