In April, we began convening virtual roundtables with our clients to discuss the initial barriers that HSE leaders were tackling as lockdown began. Throughout the summer, we continued to unpack these challenges amid the ongoing response to the current health crisis.
It is our hope that by sharing these insights, we can carry these conversations further afield and support the profession to continue demonstrating the value that HSE adds to your organisations in a crisis and beyond.
- HSE leaders are striving to ensure that vital PPE remains available for those who need it most on the frontline and are encouraging the wider community to consider other ways of minimising the spread of the virus
- Minimising the spread of the virus has prompted great emphasis on physical safety; however, HSE leaders are working to ensure that psychological safety is treated with equal importance.
- With advice from conflicting government and media sources, HSE leaders are opting to maintain the 2 metre distancing (or more) role to minimise the level of risk that employees are exposed to.
