EU Guidance on Covid-19: back to the workplace

27 April 2020


On 24 April, the European Commission issued a Guidance that represents a crucial EU contribution in this important period.

It contains links to national information on specific sectors and occupations.

The guidance covers several areas:

  • Risk assessment and appropriate measures
  • Involving workers
  • Taking care of workers who have been ill
  • Planning and learning for the future
  • Staying well informed
  • Information for sectors and occupations

The guidance prepared by EU-OSHA in cooperation with the European Commission has also benefitted from the inputs of the tripartite Advisory Committee on Safety and Health at Work and the Senior Labour Inspectors Committee. It will be updated regularly with reliable information as the situation evolves.
