Policies

During COVID-19 we are currently following the UK Government guidelines on home working: however, there are times when council officers need to carry out duties within the office for short time periods and small working bubbles, therefore minimising the risk. To keep our officers safe, we have carried out the COVID-19 risk assessments following the government’s Five Steps to Working Safely. Each risk assessment carried out has been in consultation within the relevant officers to ensure their feeling of safety and well-being.
