Health & Safety Obligations
in Unprecedented Times
Mar. 20 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges for organisations and for individuals, from remote working and employment law issues, to staff wellbeing and productivity.
Public health and wellbeing rightfully remains the main priority in order to minimise the spread of COVID-19. The latest guidance from the Government is that businesses and workplaces should encourage their employees to work from home, wherever possible. However, for many organisations and for many employees, home working is not an option.
These are unprecedented times, but as an employer it is important to maintain your focus on workplace health and safety.
We have put in place a series of controls and measures to support the containment of the virus and we continue to monitor the changing situation in order to support our clients and employees.
Our support for clients includes remote training opportunities using a virtual classroom format, with live instructors and two-way dialogue available online.
Workplace health and safety training courses from Bureau Veritas can give your employees the tools and information they need to manage health and safety risks, especially in these challenging times. Choose from general health and safety, as well as asbestos, fire, electrical and air/water-specific courses.
Vicky Shah, UK Commercial Lead: Retail, Hospitality and Finance at Bureau Veritas said: “These are challenging times for any employer but despite the current situation it is important to maintain – and in many ways increase – health and safety standards for your employees.
“Our training covers a wide range of health and safety compliance topics, delivered by an experienced team of training instructors, whilst also approved by external accreditation bodies.
“With the current guidance in mind, we also offer a range of a flexible learning environments including virtual classroom courses, so you can have complete peace of mind from a global leader in testing, inspection and certification services, without compromising the social distancing advice we have been given.”
