What Have The New Donegal Restrictions To Do With You?
What have the recent announcements of Level 3 restrictions to do with employers, when it seems they are more community / home based infections.
Firstly, where there is any additional restriction imposed this means that some businesses have to restrict or close their activities.
Secondly, the risk of infection coming into the workplace grows.
Thirdly, it is clear that many infections are arising from people dropping their guard.
WHAT CAN EMPLOYERS DO ABOUT THIS?
There are clear protocols that should be in place when at work, but it is only natural that people are becoming complacent as they grow tired of all of this.
As an employer you should revisit all your practices and re-enforce the importance of complying with them – Do an audit with your worker representative of all the Protocols– remind all staff of the importance of certain behaviours.
If you encourage safe habits in the workplace, there is a greater chance that these habits will be maintained outside of work and in the home.
They are simple habits – Stay apart – Wash your hands regularly – Wear a mask to protect yourself and not infect others – be conscious that this infection recognises every opportunity.
Stay safe and keep your work colleagues, family, friends, and strangers safe.
