Working Safely in Times of Corona

On Thursday 16 April 2020, German minister for labour and social affairs Hubertus Heil presented the brand-new “SARS-CoV-2 Health and Safety Protection Standard in the Workplace” which establishes national basic rules in addition to existing health and safety protection regulation. Company doctor Dr. Gabriele Magerl (Kompetenzzentrum für Arbeitsmedizin und Arbeitsrecht Rhein-Neckar), occupational safety specialist Michael Rink (Technische Überwachung Rink GmbH) and safety officer Martin Anton gave the all-clear to Jola’s managing director Lars Mattil. The new regulation has been already taken into account by the first version of the so-called Jolaw, our inhouse “Measures to Address the Spread of the Coronavirus” published on 18 March 2020. Its fourth revision was published yesterday.
