As global COVID-19 vaccination programmes gather momentum, businesses are grappling with whether they can - and should - make vaccination a pre - requisite to accessing workplaces. For those in the construction, energy and infrastructure sectors, this is a particularly important issue, given the complexities of operating in often challenging jurisdictions with a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19, and in remote or offshore locations.
Join Fatim Jumabhoy, Irina Akentjeva and Daniel Waldek on the 9th September as the employment, construction, energy and infrastructure teams come together to consider whether, and how, employers can impose mandatory vaccination policies, and what this means for owners, operators and contractors in these sectors.
This webinar will focus on the practical aspects of vaccination policies, including how to assess and define high-risk activities, and managing employees who are unable to receive or who refuse vaccination. It is aimed at in house legal, compliance, health & safety and HR teams working in the construction, energy and infrastructure sectors.
