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

Webinar took place on Wednesday 17 June 2020

This is a recording of the #GrowMySME Reopening The Workplace After Covid-19 – Production Environments webinar that took place on Wednesday 17th June 2020 2.00pm – 4.00pm.

Delivered by NEBOSH accredited Health & Safety Advisor Peter Daniel, and featuring Paul Peacham, Health & Safety Advisor for Supply Chain at ARCO, this session is a very informative exploration of all considerations of reopening production based workplaces such a factories and warehouses in a compliant, planned, and most importantly, safe way.

This session took a more detailed look at production environments and what measures need to be in place. It also looked at the government guidance for working in production environments 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.

Paul Peacham from ARCO discussed how they have implemented measures within their workplace to allow the safe opening of their premises by becoming ‘Covid-19 Secure’ and how you can implement similar practical measures.
