Duty of care responsibilities for Employers

If you are an employer, are you ready?

Have you assessed the risk and put adequate control measures in place to work effectively and efficiently, while protecting your workforce from the COVID-19 virus?

An IOM COVID-19 risk assessment can help employers meet their duty of care responsibilities, and employees understand how to protect themselves.

A COVID-19 risk assessment for your workplace will:

  • Address how to reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 virus in the workplace.
  • Identify potential transmission weaknesses.
  • Inform your restarting processes by reviewing current working practices to identify activities that pose potential transmission paths.
  • Enable and identify modifications to the way work is conducted, so your business can continue while preventing transmission.
  • Emergency response planning.

A COVID-19 risk assessment for your employees will:

  • Identify workers who may be more vulnerable. 
  • Educate, inform and build confidence through our 'Toolbox talk' sessions for workers explaining the control measures identified from the risk assessment.
  • Identify workers individual needs via a return to work survey.
