EHS and Employment Clinic Webinar: A protocol to safely return to work

  • Ireland
  • General


Last weekend, the Government published a Return to Work Safely Protocol designed to “support employers and workers to put measures in place that will prevent the spread of COVID-19” in the workplace once businesses and offices begin to reopen.

The Protocol brought some clarity and also many questions for our clients.

As such, on 15 May we hosted a webinar focusing on the practical application of transitioning a workforce back into the workplace.

In this webinar our Partners Julie Galbraith, Marie McGinley and Stephen Barry consider the Protocol and respond to questions in a discussion moderated by Joanne Hyde with thoughts on:

• The basic requirements outlined in the Government Protocol


• Checking for temperatures

• Issues with working from home in the long-term

• Employees who can’t attend work where schools and crèches are closed

• Emerging issues

Further guidance on returning to work safely through our Employment and EHS team’s ‘Guiding principles – returning to the workplace’ document is also available here.

You can access the full webinar recording below.
