Health and safety and the Rugby World Cup 2019

Health and safety and the Rugby World Cup 2019

It’s still early days with the Rugby World Cup 2019 and Hasmate are hoping the All Blacks are there right until the very end!

From a business point of view, over this time, there are some things to consider:

  1. Some of your employees will be coming to work tired. Yes, they stayed up to watch a game. It’s not practical for half your workforce to take the day after a game off as annual leave – so perhaps don’t book any important meetings for 8am on these days! Concentration and decision making won’t be at its best.
  2. When a game is played during work hours, some of your employees may be distracted. Keeping an eye on the score – or possibly, tuning into the game using their mobile devices. Make sure that you have discussions about when it’s appropriate to do this, e.g. break times.
  3. Some of your employees may think that they have learnt some of the rugby moves through watching hours of the Rugby World Cup. A kind of osmosis through the TV, perhaps. They may then want to demonstrate these in the workplace. Remind them that their slick moves are best practiced at home.
  4. All Black jerseys are not high-vis!
