Coronavirus: EU guidance for a safe return to the workplace


The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA)has issued today guidance on coming back to work after coronavirus.

guidance

The European Commission attaches the greatest importance to ensuring that workers can return to the workplace in a safe and healthy environment. The guidance issued today represents a crucial EU contribution in this important period and contains links to national information on specific sectors and occupations. It covers risk assessment and appropriate measures, involving workers, taking care of workers who have been ill, planning and learning for the future, staying well informed and information for sectors and occupations. Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights, Nicolas Schmit, said: “Today, more than ever, it is very clear that protecting and promoting occupational safety and health is of the utmost importance for workers, companies, social protection systems and the whole society. This guidance provides answers to practical questions that employers have, for instance on how to minimise exposure to coronavirus in the workplace, how to update their risk assessment, taking care of workers who have been ill. It will help employers and businesses in managing the return to work and in providing practical advice to the staff.” A press release is available here.
