Coronavirus (COVID-19) Workplace Policy

This document can be used to provide a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Workplace Policy which outlines the approach a business takes to ensuring the health and safety of persons and employees at work during the 2019 coronavirus pandemic. This document can be used in conjunction with a business's health and safety policy.

A Coronavirus (COVID-19) Workplace Policy is not a legal requirement but will display an employer's commitment to health and safety while giving instructions and information to employees, customers and other third parties who have contact with the business.

This document shall provide:

  • a statement on the commitment of the business to the health and safety of employees and other persons and what should be achieved through its implementation;
  • the responsibilities of relevant persons for specific actions to ensure compliance with government guidance on COVID-19; and
  • what arrangements shall be made by the business in practical terms in order to ensure the continuation of business during the pandemic where any employees become sick or need to self-isolate.


How to use this document

This document should be made easily available with and communicated to any employees of the business. It is common to display workplace policies in an easily accessible public area so that any persons who may be connected with the business in anyway can easily see the commitment the business has made to upholding standards of health and safety.

This policy shall be seen as being more valid and effective where it is signed and dated by the most senior person in the company. This may be the employer himself or the most senior person acting on behalf of the company, e.g. Managing Director. It is the duty of the employer or the most senior person in the company to ensure that aims, responsibilities and arrangements contained within this document are carried out.

Please note that should this policy be revised or altered at any time, these revisions and alterations must be communicated effectively to employees at the earliest opportunity.
