A new online platform will help firms from across Northern Ireland return to work and comply with major workplace changes post coronavirus lockdown.

Obbi Solutions has developed Obbi Lite to deal specifically “with the challenges of restarting business after temporary closure due to Covid-19”.

The company is giving Obbi Lite free to manufacturers, construction and food firms in a bid to offer “immediate help in getting staff back to work safely and effectively” as lockdown begins to ease across Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

“The original Obbi platform was designed to allow employers to perform a range of essential business tasks, including on-boarding of new staff, training and compliance,” Obbi’s chief technical officer, John Paul McCorley, said.

“The platform offers practical information on handwashing, PPE use, social distancing, health screening and working practises. Employees can be continuously tested on those regulations as well as complete daily Covid pre checks, so they understand what is required to work safely.”

“It brings together details of government restrictions, regulations and forward plans, as well as details from representative organisations in the manufacturing, food processing and construction industries.”
