Watch On Catch-Up: The Return to Work: Protecting Staff & Yourself

The Return to Work: Protecting Staff & Yourself

Webinar took place on Wednesday 20 May 2020

This is a recording of the #GrowMySME Preparing For the Return to Work: Protecting Staff & Yourself webinar that took place on Wednesday 20th May 2020 2.00pm – 4.00pm.

Delivered by Senior Business Advisor and NEBOSH accredited Health & Safety Advisor Peter Daniel, and Jill Batterby, Associate HR Consultant for Humber HR People, this session is a very informative exploration of all considerations of re-opening the workplace and bringing your staff back into work after furlough or home working in a compliant, planned, at most importantly, safe way.

This session provided participants with the most up to date information and guidance on the measures that need to be put in place to ensure all can return to work with confidence and that they had thought through all the ways to protect themselves and their staff from spreading infection.

The webinar also covered how to effectively bring any furloughed staff back into action to ensure that participants stay within the guidelines of employment law.
