Despite these challenges, it is crucial that businesses continue to address, not just COVID-related health and safety issues, but health and safety issues in general and work to prevent injury or ill health, both to ensure compliance with regulations, and to also reduce the burden on health services already under severe pressures due to COVID-19.
