COVID-19 Safeguarding employees on clients sites | Live Q&A in partnership with Reset

23 November 2020 | 14:00 - 14:30

Whilst many businesses have adapted well throughout the pandemic to provide employees with a COVID safe working environment, there are, unfortunately, some businesses who are failing, with ineffective procedures, lack of management and supervision of social distancing rules.

For businesses who have a requirement or need to visit client sites, as an employer, you have a duty of care to take reasonably practicable steps to safeguard all employees both on and off-site.

To assist with safeguarding employees, our Director of Health and Safety Services, Nick Wilson will be hosting a live Q&A on Safeguarding employees on client’s sites. Nick will be sharing how EW have prepared; the lessons learnt and the employment law implications.

During this 30-minute virtual session, we will be covering the following points:

  • The duty of care of both parties;
  • Is it necessary to visit the clients’ site or can these needs be met through online video conferencing?;
  • The importance of conducting a risk assessment;
  • Pre-visit checks and point of work assessment;
  • Access to on-site facilities including safe working area, sanitising facilities etc.; and
  • How to manage refusals to return to work on health and safety grounds.
