Why you must stay in the know

Keeping up to date with relevant guidance should be at the heart of any business that wants to ensure its operations remain safe and compliant.

 

The commissioners' priority is offering support during these unprecedented times. When it comes to applying and monitoring the new processes they introduce, however, the responsibility falls on you, as the workers within the industry.

 

We have been sending regular emails prompting you to read the advice and keep up to date with what the TCs have been doing to help you during the pandemic.
