Safety isn’t expensive, it’s priceless.
 

Welcome to Smart Return

to the Workplace.

Can you have a Smart return to the office?

 

These are unprecedented times. The challenges presented to businesses during this past year during the coronavirus {COVID-19) pandemic have been wide and varied. Few of us thought that an unparalleled health crisis would be something that we would all have to manage in our working environments. Workplaces previously thought to be low risk have had to close, whilst others permitted to remain open have had to review risk control measures and, in many instances, transition their employees to work from home. 

 

But there is good news on the horizon. With case numbers declining and the continued efforts to roll out the vaccine programme we can begin to envisage reoccupying our workplaces and getting back to 'business as usual'.

It is an employer's duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business. Employers must do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve this.  This means making sure that workers and others are protected from anything that may cause harm, effectively controlling any risks to injury or health that could arise in the workplace.

 

Employers have duties under health and safety law to assess risks in the workplace. Risk assessments should be carried out that address all risks that might cause harm in your workplace.  This includes things like making sure your Fire Risk Assessment is up-to-date, that you have a Fire Emergency Plan and it is relevant to your business and any changes that may have been affected during your period of closure.

Workers with Masks

At Smart Families we understand the challenges businesses face, which we know are often not helped by information overload. Our industry knowledge and expertise can help you ensure that you are welcoming your employees back into a safe and compliant work environment.

Whether you are a landlord, Building Manager, or employer it is vital to ensure that any workspaces that have been unoccupied for any period of time are fully assessed prior to reoccupation. 

We are also able to offer comprehensive Coronavirus

(Covid-19) advice in the form of developing specific coronavirus guidance for your business to help you protect your employees; such as Coronavirus H&S policies, Coronavirus Risk Assessments, Daily Management checklists,  Vulnerable Persons Risk Assessments, Daily Cleaning Checklists etc.
