COVID-19 Workplace Health and Safety Guidelines

The COVID-19 Return to Work Guidelines or Policy is a set of rules, policies, and guidelines formulated by employers which outline actions taken by the employer and employee to protect employees from coronavirus infection. The purpose of these guidelines is to guarantee the safety of the employees working during the COVID-19 crisis by limiting the spread of the virus.

As the COVID-19 pandemic still persist, it is extremely important to educate employees on safety precautions they must follow to ensure their safety. To this end, this document is necessary for employers whose office-based staff are working during this global pandemic. If all employees are working from home (remotely), use the Remote Work Policy instead. However, but if some, but not all employees are working from home, the employer will require this document as well as the Remote Work Policy.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) have issued guidelines that have been adapted in this document to provide detailed safety guidelines employees should comply with while working from the office during the pandemic.
