Advice on bringing household employees safely back into the workplace

As lockdown alert levels have eased, household employees have been allowed to return to the homes in which they work. They return to a “new normal” that has raised many questions around how to keep every member of the household as healthy as possible. Household employees may care for the home, for an elderly or ill family member, for a child, or perform another function. They may live with their employer or come and go. Dr Nompumelelo Ndaba of the National Institute for Occupational Health (NIOH) shares the practical steps and insights needed day to day, to ensure the health of the household going forward. Dr Ndaba has been interviewed by Discovery for the Discovery COVID-19 podcast series.
