Back to work - work from home

Back to work!

The government today posted guidance including HSE guidance on getting back to work after the Covid-19 crisis.

It details by industry what is required. Your professional indemnity insurance may need to see proof of compliance for these measures before they allow you to open back up, so make sure you keep a record of steps taken.

 

Back To Work for VAs – our safety statement

At Virtually Sorted, our team all works virtually anyway and our work is usually delivered by email or download link. As such the risk of us contaminating  your workspace or spreading the virus is nil. We have remained open throughout the lockdown period, and have adjusted our team’s availability to reflect extra responsibilities during this difficult period.

It also means we are able to give you guidance on the best systems to use to get your admin staff online safely and effectively. 

Please ask if there is anything we can do to get you back to work:

  • advising on webinar software
  • how many times to check in with the team
  • how we share files
  • what to track progress with
  • safety standards for home working
  • what your staff need you to check

We have this set up for our own business, we are happy to share how we do it.

SVA has also released a document for employees who are working from home for the first time:
