08 Jun 2020

office workers wearning PPEIt is now more important than ever that businesses take a proactive and planned approach to risk management so their businesses can continue to operate during the Coronavirus outbreak. 

Ensuring your business is COVID-secure is essential to keeping your workers and customers safe.

The IoD and HSE’s leaflet Leading health and safety at work (INDG417) sets out the principles to help leaders across all industries use a ‘Plan, Do, Check, Act’ approach to keep their workplaces safe. 

Available as a free download or alternatively to purchase as a hard copy, the leaflet is for use by all directors, governors, trustees, officers and their equivalents in the private, public and third sector. 

HSE has also produced the following guides, to keep workers COVID-secure during the outbreak and help you manage the risk from coronavirus in your business:

  • Working safely during the coronavirus outbreak - a short guide
    This guide covers who should work, protecting those at higher risk, getting into and leaving work, organising work areas, and good hygiene.
  • Talking with your workers about working safely during the coronavirus outbreak
    Guidance on consulting your workers and measures to prevent coronavirus in your workplace, making it COVID-secure
For regular updates on coronavirus during the coronavirus outbreak, visit the HSE website and stay up-to-date via the dedicated IoD Coronavirus Business Support Hub
