Start engaging positively Yes I really do need all these dogs shirt. Employers and employees should be working together to work out how to return to work. The govt will issue guidelines but come on they won’t write the policy for every employer and employee get real. It’s not up to the individual employees to make their workplace safe. They can complain, they can ask, they can demand, they can brandish legalities. But it is not their responsibility to take care of it. It is the responsibility of the employer to keep their employees safe. No employer should ever ask that their employees work in an unsafe environment and no employee should be in the position that they have to say it’s not safe to come to work.
That’s not lack of gumption or idiocy Yes I really do need all these dogs shirt, it’s the fact that the employer holds the responsibility. Yes, we should look out ourselves, we should point out discrepancies, we don’t implement the safety procedures ourselves. I can assure you that assertiveness is not something I am lacking. But for goodness sake. You cannot say that every individual has to make their own workplace safe. Should shop workers put up their own screens and provide their own gloves.
