Health and Safety during COVID-19
With new guidance and advice coming from the Government, WHO and HSE on a regular basis and lots of fake and incorrect new stories available online; we wanted to be a resource for our clients and other businesses to access useful and factual advice, guides and resources.
We have compiled a suite of Health and Safety resources that will be useful for businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak. This is a combination of advice from our team and resources from other reliable sources.
To begin with, this is the main HSE page with latest information and advice regarding coronavirus. The page is being updated regularly so keep an eye on it for the most up to date guidance from the HSE. And this is the official Government coronavirus page which features public guidance and support. This is updated regularly with important announcements.
The above sites are full of practical, useful and factual advice, but we have also pulled together some specific useful articles and other resources for you below.
