The HSA says the majority of Kerry businesses are adhering to COVID-19 guidelines.
Following the introduction of COVID-19 Return to Work Safely Protocols, the Health and Safety Authority was given responsibility for inspecting businesses and giving advice on how to put further measures in place, if needed.
The HSA inspected 120 businesses throughout Kerry since COVID-19 protocols came into effect on 18th May.
Its inspections found that 82% of businesses had prepared a COVID-19 response plan and 94% had adequate safety measures in place; these include the provision of COVID-19 signage, social distancing measures, hand washing facilities, masks and perspex guards.
Where workplaces were not fully compliant with protocols, these were given advice and guidance on how to put further measures in place.
In addition, they were also provided with a written report of inspection, setting out the breaches identified and areas where improvements are required.
The Health and Safety Authority says it's an offence for an employer not to comply with a report of inspection.
