Ireland has now moved to Phase 2 of the Government’s revised 4-phase Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business.  The next phases of reopening will be Monday 29 June and Monday 20 July.

The team in Engineers Ireland remains fully available to you, our members, and staff are contactable by phone, video conference, email and social media. Please do reach out to discuss work, plan a meeting with us, or discuss any other matter. Contact phone numbers for our main departments are available on our website here. More information about our current activities is provided below.

The National Return to Work Safely Protocol is a guide for businesses in making assessments and adapting workplace procedures and practices to comply fully with the Covid-19 related public health protection measures. It sets out in very clear terms for employers and workers, the steps they must take before a workplace reopens, and then while it continues to operate.

The health, safety and wellbeing of staff, members, visitors and public remains our primary concern. 

Therefore as restrictions ease, the team in Engineers Ireland:

  • Is preparing our head office for safe reoccupation, when appropriate, and in line with the National Return to Work Safely Protocol and the Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business.
  • Is working to support staff returning to workplace-working and welcoming our members and visitors to our office, as it becomes prudent to do so.
  • Will be setting out appropriate protocols to minimise the potential for transmission of the virus.

The National Return to Work Safely Protocol as referenced above, is a Government guide for businesses in making assessments and adapting workplace procedures and practices to comply fully with the Covid-19 related public health protection measures. The protocol covers all kinds of areas including communicating workplace changes, amending procedures for prompt identification and isolation of workers who may have Covid-19 symptoms, to physical distancing and hand hygiene.   The HSA (Health and Safety Authority) is the lead agency in terms of overseeing compliance with the protocol in the workplace. If you as an employer need further guidance on the protocol, the HSA Helpline can be contacted at 1890 289 389. The HSA website is here. Note that employers have responsibility in relation to the health, safety and wellbeing of all employees and facility users, based on the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005. 

For members working in the built environment and construction sector, please see a link to our website here to safe working methods and guidelines which have been designed by members of the Construction Industry Council of which Engineers Ireland is a member. 

If your business has been impacted by this Covid-19 crisis, our information base provides a link to the financial supports available from Government.

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection has a range of income supports for employers, individuals and self-employed workers and they are here. These payments include the Covid-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment, the Covid-19 Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme, the Short Time Work Support Scheme and the Cross Border (Frontier) Workers Scheme.
