COVID-19 Risk Assessments
Whilst businesses may be gearing up to go back to work shortly, it will likely be some time before normality resumes. All employers have a legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their employees. This includes taking reasonably practicable steps to protect against the transmission of COVID-19.
We can assist you in delivering a 3 step return to work service:
1: Follow guidance
All employers have a legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their employees by following the government guidelines that include the ‘5 steps to working safely’, and 8 guides that cover a range of different types of work. We will perform a gap analysis against the guidelines specific to your business.
2: Assess your workplace
The first step to working safely is to do a risk assessment to identify the potential risks, the level of risk and agreeing to implement controls to mitigate the risks. Theses risk assessments can be shared with employees for feedback and to reassure them that their health and safety are priority. We will perform a risk assessment and present these in a format that can be shared and understood throughout your business.
3: Keep Safe
Manage the risks of coronavirus in your business, keeping abreast of government guideline updates, reviewing risk assessment and communicating with you employees. This includes taking reasonably practicable steps to protect against the transmission of COVID-19. We will inform you of any updates to the government guidelines and revisit your risk assessment to ensure you and your employees are kept up-to-date.
