C-19 Return to Work Checklist for Employers

Our team have developed a detailed checklist for Employers which can be downloaded at the button below.

This checklist is based on public health guidelines as required in the Return to Work Safely, Covid-19 Specific National Protocol for Employers and Workers. This document can be printed and completed onsite to ensure you are meeting all necessary requirements. If you have any queries on this checklist, please contact a member of our team.

C-19 Business Response Plan

Our team can advise you on all aspects of the Return to Work Safely Protocol and assist your organisation in preparing a bespoke Covid -19 business response plan. The business response plan must include dealing with a suspected case or confirmed case of COVID-19, include contingency measures and include control measures.

The Covid-19 Business Response Plan must be specific regarding the immediate steps that are to be taken during a disruption; be flexible to respond to the changing internal and external conditions of a disruption; focus on the impact of incidents that potentially lead to disruption; be effective in minimising the impact through the implementation of appropriate solutions and assign roles and responsibilities for tasks within them. Employers should therefore keep up to date with the latest measures introduced by Government and any advice issued as a result.

Compliance is to be monitored by the HSA using their existing powers under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Acts, which include inspection powers and the power to issue Improvement Notices and Prohibition Notices requiring the cessation of work activities in cases of serious non-compliance. The usual penalties for breaches of health and safety obligations (which include criminal sanctions for employers and senior management as well as fines of up to €3 million) will also apply.
