• COVID-19 Response Plan - Template Documents

    The below COVID-19 Response Plan and associated documents are designed to support employers and workers to put measures in place that will prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace as the economy begins to open up. The plan should be used by all workplaces to adapt their workplace procedures and practices to comply fully with the COVID-19 related public health protection measures identified as necessary by the HSE.

    The COVID-19 Response Plan is based on the requirements of the Return to Work Safely Protocol document which was issued by the Irish Government and is the result of a collaborative effort by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), the Health Services Executive (HSE) and the Department of Health and the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation. A copy of the Return to Work Safely Protocol document is available to download at www.gov.ie.
