The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) will be able to shut down workplaces which do not comply with new safety protocols aimed at preventing the spread of Covid-19, the Minister for Business Heather Humphreys has warned.

Employers will have to ensure their employees answer a survey before they return to work, and confirm whether or not they have Covid-19 symptoms or if they have been in contact with someone displaying symptoms.

Workers will also have to undertake induction training to ensure they are up to speed with public health advice.

    That guy on the right shouldn’t be in work in his condition.
    Looks like a bad case of the colouredy squiggles.

      some workplaces have free coffee facilities which usually have a big batch of mugs that people can pick up and fill as they need; maybe that type of scenario is what they mean? not to say i wouldn’t rule out people being fairly blase with using other peoples’ cups in other workplaces

    Euronews said this was only for a period of three days but no mention of that in the IT?

      It was on the front page on Saturday’s IT. I see that article has been updated since then so perhaps the 3 days was removed.

            It reads to me as an insurance bottom-covering exercise. Some sort of “can’t blame the workplace for you getting Covid-19 from your workmate if your workmate signed a form saying they weren’t sick” thing.

            Yea that’s what I thought too
            the new normal will be you caught COVID yourself because you weren’t a lert – MMW

    If handshakes are banned then by the same token shouldn’t door handles be off-limits? Hey,,maybe that could be a solution to the unemployment crisis – A team of dedicated door-openers for every business. Toilets are another elephant in the room. All seems a bit absurd. More for optics than reality-based.

      Or, you know, you could wash your hands after you use the loo (and flush it). With water AND soap.

        Reliant on the weakest links in the chain – if you wash your hands all nice and clean, and then have to touch the door handle after PooyHands McNoWash…

    Shaking hands only really happens on the Southside, doesn’t it?

      True: “Wharra ya lookin’ at” is unlikely to transmit a viral infection; injury perhaps though.
