Adaptability may just be the best word to describe 2020! Everyone has had to change in some way or another, and none more so than businesses. Most business owners will have already been aware of their responsibilities about social distancing and hygiene in the workplace but now more than ever, this is this crucial for businesses, safety and their image…
What is Social Distancing and Hygiene Awareness in the Workplace?
Social distancing and hygiene awareness is about making people aware of the current regulations and expectations – its about providing information to employees and members of the public visiting you about hygiene processes and social distancing for example to help keep them safe…
Most of these processes are implicit everyday things that we expect from each other, such as washing hands after going to the toilet, but they may be more specific to a certain situation, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. In this instance, hygiene awareness will also include informing employees and the public about temporary measures such as a two-metre workplace/social distancing rule.
What if your Business doesn’t follow Social Distancing and Hygiene Awareness?
If a business fails to provide adequate social distancing and hygiene awareness in the workplace, it may be putting its employees health and that of the public at risk! The business may even be breaking the law in some circumstances, leaving it open for negligence claims.
But by maintaining these workplace standards, the business mitigates risk to others and enhances their own employer/public reputation.
