The main aim of the programme is to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in workplaces in Ireland by setting out a framework for the implementation of a Covid-19 workplace programme. A detailed proactive response within businesses in relation to Covid-19, specifically focussing on proven and scientific methods of controlling the transmission of the disease in businesses is required. This will ultimately lead to increased health and well-being among employees and the wider community (Jahangiri et al. 2020).
