Qatar’s Public Health Ministry has issued back to work guidelines for employers. Employers will have to ensure an employee is appointed as a compliance officer at workplaces to implement anti-Coronavirus measures and monitor compliance with them. Employers also have to develop and update a Coronavirus response plan to deal with suspected or confirmed cases in the workplace and specify what has to be done if an employee displays symptoms during working hours. They will also have to conduct a health and safety risk assessment before anyone returns to a workplace, and put relevant measures in place to protect the health and safety of employees in line with Public Health Ministry guidance. It should cover risks posed by facilities, services, working conditions and the composition of the workforce. Based on the results of the risk assessment, employers will have to develop a plan for the resumption of services and the return of employees to work in line with the phases.
