COVID-19 - Workplace Health & Safety

If you know of someone planning to restart their business, please let them know of the workplace health and safety advice available for them. North East Derbyshire District Council have provided information sheets with advice for a number of different businesses to help them keep their staff and customers safe when they do re-open.

Additionally, local businesses who are small and medium-sized employers, with fewer than 250 employees, will be able to apply to recover the costs of paying Covid-19 related Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) payments they have made to their employees. If you have friends or family who have local businesses who this may help, please signpost them to https://www.ne-derbyshire.gov.uk/coronavirus-covid-19/business-advice for more information.

Garden Fires

North East Derbyshire District Council are still asking residents not to light garden fires as people are still in self-isolation, including those in high risk and vulnerable groups.

The District Council are also advising residents using BBQs and chimineas to behave responsibly, consider their neighbours and to only burn appropriate material to avoid generating excessive smoke that could cause a nuisance.

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service has also issued advice on how to barbecue safely, so please have a read. The green waste collection service has resumed and the household waste recycling centres have re-opened so his should reduce the need have fires for the time being.
