Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > BELGIUM: short videos for working safely

Because it is still as important as ever to respect the preventive measures at work against the coronavirus, the FPS Employment has produced 6 video capsules of about 1 minute each. The objective is to work in the office or at home in a safe environment:

  • Work at home if you can
  • Maintain a distance of at least 1.5 m at all times
  • Apply your employer’s prevention measures
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water
  • If possible, use only your own working materials
  • Go home if you feel sick.
