As part of the 'Building health and safety practice for a new world' webinar series.
As WHO research has shown, Zoonotic diseases are on the rise, so even if we’re not dealing with COVID outbreaks, businesses need to have plans in place to manage the risk of communicable diseases.
Businesses need to maintain the health and safety practices they adopted during COVID to ensure they are resilient in the future :
o Infection prevention and control – stopping the spread of pathogens through good hygiene practices and testing
o Working differently – more digital and remote working, less travel
