Safety Smart: Monthly Update October 2020

9th November 2020 Posted in Blogs

As COVID-19 remains ever-present in our lives, Mates in Mind are an organisation providing support to workforces with their mental wellbeing, especially those who are working remotely during the pandemic.  

We’ve also been taking a look at RIDDOR reporting during COVID-19, sharing useful advice from HSE on whether or not you need to report cases amongst your workforce. 

Whilst industry events remain virtual for now there’s still plenty to choose from including SHP Webinars covering topics including wellness in the workforce, risk assessments and much more, places can be booked here.
