Our COVID Marshals have various proactive and reactive duties to assist the Employer with COVID-19 spread, prevention, management and the monitoring of all workplace procedures implemented to reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus at work to as low as is reasonably practicable.
Their main duties include:
Our Covid marshals aim to be integral and valuable members of the COVID management team, as industry begins to re-open and attempts to get people back to work in a safe and controlled environment.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Employers has a legal duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees and others whilst at work. Therefore, the workplace must be ‘COVID-19 secure’. This means that all reasonable steps must be taken to reduce the chances of infection from COVID-19 whilst at work. A COVID Marshal will help to ensure that the Employer has met their legal duty and the ongoing management of keeping the workplace ‘COVID-19 secure’.
