During the autumn of 2020, many employees in small and medium-sized companies will return to their office environments. This places great demands on companies to be able to offer employees safe work environments. Covid-19 is a virus that does not go away. We as a society will be forced to learn to live with it for a long time, privately and at work. For Hammargruppen the work of securing the working environment is absolutely central. Hammargruppen has therefore taken a number of measures in order to protect employees and operations.
Risk assessment of the work environment
It is included in Hammargruppens employer's responsibility to assess potential risks of injury and illness linked to the work environment. Risk assessment is part of the systematic work environment work. A risk can be defined here as the probability that a dangerous event or exposure will occur and the consequences of whether it occurs, in the form of injury or ill health.
Covid-19 has contributed to Hammargruppen developed the work of creating a safe working environment. Information on how we counteract infection, and make it difficult for it to spread between people, is now a natural part of Hammargruppens work environment work. The goal here too is to minimize the risk of employees being exposed to infection risks during working hours.
