Returning to work? Keep your employees safe

After 10 weeks of full lockdown, we are now experiencing the first steps to get back to a new normal. While the government encourages employees to return to work, there are no proper provisions for them to get there safely. In the first few days, public transport – particularly in London, one of the UK’s main hotspots for infections – was absolutely packed like in pre-Corona times. Even if commuters were willing to adhere to the social distancing measures outlined by the government, they merely stood a chance.

While employers clearly recognise the need to keep their employees safe at the workplace, eg. by rearranging office layouts, ensuring social distancing, supplying face masks and hand sanitisers; there are currently no provisions in place on how to keep the very same employees safe on their daily commute.

People are urged to avoid public transport but how are they supposed to get to work? Pre Corona, more and more people were switching to public transport options as part of the campaign to reduce CO2 emissions, whereas now, they are told to use their own transport whenever possible to avoid the risk of infection and to keep themselves and others safe.

To achieve this, employers could widen their engagement and help those staff who do not have access to own transport. Flexible and short-term vehicle hire options provide an excellent opportunity for employers to show that they value their staff and do their part. Without a long-term commitment, these hire models allow to rent a vehicles from 1 day to 12 months, giving employees the flexibility to adjust to the needs of their staff and the business.
