Updated advice on talking with your workers about preventing coronavirus
The law says you must consult with your workers about reducing risks from coronavirus in your workplace.
HSE has updated its guidance to help you have conversations with your workforce about providing support and keeping control measures in place.
Talking to your workers means you can explain changes you’re making to keep the workplace COVID-secure and continue to run your business safely. It also gives workers the chance to:
tell you if they’re worried about any workplace risks
influence decisions about health and safety
HSE has converted this advice to web pages so it is easier for people to find the information they need and have expanded the guidance to include more advice on:
supporting higher-risk groups
returning to the workplace
ventilation and air conditioning
stress, mental health and wellbeing
The updated guidance will help you keep in touch with workers and support them as restrictions are eased in the coming months.
