There are many areas in every workplace that need to be managed to avoid COVID-19 risk for employees, contractors and workplace visitors. Starting from making sure employees and contractors have completed introductory COVID-19 training, contractor arrivals before projections, to preparing incident management in COVID-19.
The COVID-19 workplace induction course ensures that all employees understand everything they need to know about fieldwork, as well as guidelines, procedures and training essential for workplace safety and management in the case of COVID-19.
It is important to develop workplace coronavirus preparedness and response plans, taking into account all work areas and roles of workers and potential sources of exposure.
Preparing employees, contractors and visitors to return to work is essential. Use workplace risk assessment tools to ensure the safety of low and medium risk workplaces.

To support the workplace, we have developed specific tools that you can use to manage your employees and your location to reduce risk and increase awareness of COVID-19. Make sure all artists and staff undergo the induction of the COVID-19 corona virus.
The situation changes in different ways every day in different cities around the world. Whether your organization operates in a high-impact hotspot or a hotspot with reduced restrictions, it is equally important to ensure that your employees, contractors, and visitors are covered by the COVID-19 for Coronavirus Policies and Procedures.
The risk assessment (RA) process should ideally begin at the work activity planning stage and continue throughout the work activity. They should be complemented by periodic reviews to ensure risk assessments are always specific and complete current tasks.
You can have risk assessment documentation via labsafety.ie/services/consultancy/risk-assessments.
A preliminary assessment should be made to determine whether each hazard presents a significant risk of injury or damage to the company. The risk arising from each hazard should then be measured using a risk matrix, taking into account current company procedures and existing work permits / controls.
Once all initial significant hazards have been identified, managers should seek to minimize risks by listing special precautions and ensuring that staff and other affected individuals fully comply with controls. Precautions should take care of each hazard in turn. Before moving on to the next identified hazard, supervisors should ensure that the risk of injury is as low as possible.
After the precautions have been taken, the hazards need to be addressed to ensure that the residual risk of each hazard has a low risk score. Hazards that indicate a risk assessment of more than "low" after the introduction of precautionary measures should not be continued.
Work should be reviewed to find alternative methods of closure or additional precautions that allow the work to be carried out without risk of injury or damage. The determination of residual risk must be carried out in the same manner as in the initial assessment, as each hazard must be considered individually and the risk of injury / damage must be calculated.
