Looking after your employees
Hand wash and sanitation
Make sure you set up a hand wash station or stations that are near to your main work areas, and provide as much hand sanitisers and wipes as you can. Encourage everyone who works for you to use them as much as possible.
We can’t stress how important it is to keep communicating with your staff – if an employee has to self-isolate, inform the rest of the team quickly and simply. Be honest about any changes to working practices, but keep things as calm as possible – everyone is taking every day as it comes.
Are any of your employees in high-risk groups? This could mean those over 70, those with underlying health conditions and those who are pregnant. Take the time to discuss whether you need special measures to protect them, or if they will need to self-isolate. Support and facilitate whatever is the right action to protect their health.
Make sure you update your emergency contact details for your employees.
