Mitigate the effects of the pandemic in your organization — Version 3 of the Guidelines is now available
The current COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally shifted the way people live and work. The Guidelines are a response to the pandemic and the increased risk the disease presents to the health, safety, and well-being of people in all work settings.
BSI’s Safe Working Guidelines provide guidance to business owners, managers, workers and other users, as they deal with the complexities of this changing situation and adapt their own ways of working. The information and recommendations are applicable to any organization, regardless of the nature of their activities or geographical location.
Key changes in Version 3 include an Executive Summary and guidance on:
planning for changes to restrictions at local, regional and national levels
testing, contact tracing and quarantine, and two new annexes on:
protective security considerations, and
accessibility and inclusion considerations.
These guidelines are currently under consideration for development as an international document through ISO.
For further information on the Guidelines, and to access Versions 1 and 2, please see the Executive Summary.
We encourage you to submit feedback on this document. Comments are therefore welcome from users, across the globe, to ensure we capture up-to-date knowledge and good working practices. This is a general set of guidelines on safe working and is not sector or topic specific, so comments should be of general applicability and suitable for non-technical users.
