COVID-19 - VIRTUAL SUPPORT
Home offices and their environments are not usually professionally prepared...and neither are excited family members, eager to spend time with a Mum and Dad home all day :-)
It is possible that working normal or even fewer hours at home could have OHS consequences if your staff are working solely on laptops or incorrectly configured computer screens and/or have their office furniture/equipment incorrectly configured for them. Even worse if they are tempted or have no option but to to work from the sofa!
Additionally, it is easy to work to a routine when the parameters are set for you at work but this is not always so easily achieved at home with lots of non-work related activities going on around you. It takes more discipline and regime to work at home each day than is ever needed at the office.
Both of the programmes above help to iron out these currently, more commonplace situations.
POST COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS - REVIVAL SUPPORT
Hopefully soon, we will all see our second big adjustment for 2020, with everything returning to normal...or as many are predicting, a 'new normal', as COVID-19 measurements are eased.
Whether a new normal, and the way we work and live will have differences or whether it be an adjustment back to familiarity, both possibilities will take some accommodating after the challenges we have all experienced in early 2020.
Some of our current temporary measures may well become permanent or commonplace, for example, staff working from home and hygiene protocols.
It can all be quite disarming, so Body of Health has developed some practical programmes to help your employees navigate through the practical demands of change.
