Topic: Why reporting matters: it's not all about Covid-19

During 2020, CIRAS saw a growth in concerns about health and wellbeing, mainly focused on issues relating to Covid-19. At the same time, we saw a drop in other types of concern. While this could be partially explained by a drop in activity, we also heard anecdotally that some members were concerned that their staff were less likely to report non-Covid safety issues, seeing them as less important in light of the pandemic.

At this webinar, we reinforced an important message: if it was unsafe before Covid-19, it is unsafe now. It's important that day-to-day health and safety issues don't get forgotten, and people continue to speak up about them.
