Advice for Employers and Employees in Covid-19
The introduction of Level Three’s less stringent restrictions depends on two factors – effectively controlling Covid-19 infection rates and streamlining health facilities to deal with the pandemic. The Minister of Health, Zweli Mkhize, says these pre-requisites have been met.
South Africa is gearing itself for a more relaxed Covid-19 Level Three lockdown which will see thousands of more people from qualifying industries returning to work. When that happens, it will be even more important than before that employers and employees heed occupational health and safety (OHS) responsibilities.
The increased number of people inter-mingling at work poses an increased threat of coronavirus contamination. Only by taking on board the advice of professional OHS experts, like MAKROSAFE, can the South African economy be safely and effectively kick-started.
