Watch On Catch-Up: Reopening The Workplace After Covid-19 – Offices

Reopening The Workplace After Covid-19 – Offices

Webinar took place on Tuesday 09 June 2020

This is a recording of the #GrowMySME Reopening The Workplace After Covid-19 – Offices webinar that took place on Tuesday 9th June 2020 10.00am – 12.00pm.

Delivered by NEBOSH accredited Health & Safety Advisor Peter Daniel, and featuring David Talbot, CEO of CATCH Training, this session is a very informative exploration of all considerations of re-opening office-based workplaces in a compliant, planned, and most importantly, safe way.

This session took a more detailed look at the office environment and what measures need to be in place. It also looked at the government guidance for working in offices and reviewed the measures you may already have and what you may need to implement. Furthermore, it examined a sample risk assessment and how these should be completed and how they can be used for protecting your staff, making people feel safe as well as ensuring compliance.

David Talbot from CATCH Training discussed how they have implemented measures within their workplace to allow the safe opening of their premises and how you can implement similar practical measures.
