Controlling Infections in Workplace & COVID 19 Precautions

Nebosh Brochure


With the wild spread of the pandemic COVID-19, safety has now reached the pinnacle of priority for every individual. By now, this intense outbreak has taught us more about safe survival irrespective of staying at home or working at the office. Establishments are resuming back with minimal employees with an aim to keep their business going. In such a scenario, it is quite imperative for organizations to ensure that their workplace is safe for their employees to function. Not only employers, but it is also the responsibility of employees to keep themselves & everyone around them safe.

Health hazards are present in all workplaces but they are most difficult to trace and control because they are invisible to the naked eyes. Workplaces could become sources of infection and its spread would inevitably cause employee sickness and absenteeism. This causes loss in productivity, overrun in projects, and a general loss of morale and goodwill amongst the employees. Organizations have a ‘duty of care’ towards their employees and others to detect, prevent, and control the spread of infections.
