This document can be used to draft a Health and Safety Policy which is COVID-compliant by setting out the company's commitment to providing a healthy and safe working environment for the employees during the time of COVID.
The purpose of the policy is to outline the company's responsibilities and duties in protecting the health and safety of employees; preventive methods to be taken by the company in case of emergencies; and procedures for reporting a breach of the policy. The policy is important because it helps in identifying risks involved in the work and prevents occupational accidents. This ensures that precautions are appropriately carried out.
The document should be used by Company's senior management while drafting their health and safety policy. Since Health and Safety policies are subject to changes alongside changed circumstances, The Company should make sure to notify its employees whenever the policy undergoes major changes. Specific jurisdictional guidelines and requirements should also be taken into account. Employers in Hong Kong, for example, have a common law duty to take reasonable care of employees' health and safety. The Occupational Safety and Health Ordinance (Cap. 509) provides for safety and health protection to employees in the workplace. It outlines the general rights and responsibilities of the employer, supervisor and worker to prevent workplace injuries and illness.
