Lifting the coronavirus lockdown: Policy on safe working during the COVID-19 pandemic

Original author: Stephen Simpson

When to use this model coronavirus/lifting the lockdown policy

Use this model HR policy to set out your organisation's approach to safe working for workers returning as the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown is lifted.

Warning: The safeguards employers put in place will vary widely depending on the sector, type of work, and nature of their workplaces. When drafting this policy, HR professionals must refer to Working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19), in which the Government provides eight guides covering work in: construction and other outdoor work; factories, plants and warehouses; labs and research facilities; offices and contact centres; other people's homes; restaurants offering takeaway or delivery; shops and branches; and vehicles.
