We’re all keen to get back to work as soon as possible to get the economy working and resume normal life — or as close to normal as it can be. However, there are many important factors to consider when bringing staff back to work safely after lockdown. In this webinar, our lead consultant Katharine Metters will be joined by one of the UK’s leading health and safety lawyers, Dr Simon Joyston-Bechal. They will discuss factors employers will need to consider, such as risk management, identifying and protecting vulnerable employees, implementing social distancing and other measures needed to maintain productivity while prioritising employee welfare.

This free webinar will help you develop a safe and responsible back to work strategy for your employees. We will also be distributing a free advice pack, and answering any questions you send in during the presentation.
