Results of Risk Assessment for Return to Work Following COVID-19 Lockdown
Polar Capital continues to closely monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), taking into account guidance from the Public Health England (PHE), the World Health Organisation, the National Health Service (NHS), the UK government and regulators. Throughout this period, the health and wellbeing of our staff, clients and contractors remain our top priority.
On 11 May 2020, the UK government set out guidance for organisations returning to work during the coronavirus pandemic. Their specific guidance on managing risk can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/offices-and-contact-centres.
We have assessed the risks associated with returning to work and implemented a series of measures to manage and reduce these risks. Our objective is to ensure a safe return to work that reduces risk to staff, visitors and contractors, complies with government guidance and allows as many business activities as possible to resume safely. We will take all staff into consideration, including those who cannot attend the site due to vulnerabilities or caring responsibilities. This activity is under the oversight of the Polar Capital COVID-19 Executive Management Team.
