In direct response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have developed a number of resources to support you in making a safe return to work.

The first is our NEW COVID-19 Workplace Guidance Toolkit. This is a comprehensive suite of electronic PHSS-branded resources which includes:

25-Page Guidance Framework that sets out 5 key elements to consider, along with detailed practical guidance on the steps required to support your return to work - includes supporting PowerPoint slide deck.

Generic Toolbox Talk summarising the 5 key elements mentioned above and highlighting the key precautionary measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Daily Briefing Template to guide you through the key areas to cover when briefing your staff on COVID-19; symptoms, procedures, hygiene and risk assessment.

Key HSEQ Document Templates & Checklists - including Risk Assessment, Workplace Readiness, Site Induction and HSEQ Inspection templates.

Suite of electronic (print-ready) A3 COVID-19 Posters - covering Symptoms, Social Distancing and Hand Hygiene.

Fortunately, we can report that currently we have no cases amongst staff and no connections to affected persons or returning from affected areas.

We appreciate things may change over the coming days, weeks and even months, but for now some of our team will continue to work from home to support your health and safety needs as required. If that changes, we’ll let you know.
