Design a Return to Work from Office Plan
Designing a work from Office plan during this Covid Crisis is something that needs wider consideration. There is health & safety to think of, productivity, employee concerns and fears, legal requirements and the covid 19 prevention guidelines. To help you here is a list of things to consider:
In order to keep social distancing not all can return to the office
What to do with those employees who are pregnant or have a pre-existing condition?
How to ensure employees are safe during the commute, lunch, at their desk and during visits to the washroom, which are often shared with other companies
How to ensure those with fever or possible early symptoms remain at home
What do employment act and labour laws say
what are the government guidelines for work places and what are the DOSH requirements
Is the office ready for this? What is the Covid 19 risk analysis and what risk responses do we need in place
What do we need to do when someone falls sick? Isolation? Fumigation? Testing?
Will our employees be able to reach the office safely? Are they scared of using public transport?
Make sure you are familiar with the guidelines from the MoH and the DOSH requirements before you consider calling your team back to the office.
