Do you believe the COVID-19 pandemic will have a lasting impact on occupational safety and health and, if so, how?
More emphasis will be or should be put on the future safety of a company’s employees whether it is as a result of the pandemic or in general. We have seen more company’s looking to align themselves with an international standard that they can adhere to not only to ensure they have the right protocols in place but also to show future and existing employees that they have a policy in place that ensures the ongoing duty of care for those in their employment.
