COVID-19 Risk Assessments

Intrinsic to “reopening” your organisation and staff returning to their normal workplaces, employers need to take reasonable steps to protect their workers and others from coronavirus by way of a COVID-19 risk assessment. From this risk assessment you then need to put controls in place to make sure your sites, people and processes are “COVID-19 Secure”.

 In undertaking this COVID-19 risk assessment you must:

  • Identify what work activity or situations might cause transmission of the virus;
  • Think about who could be at risk;
  • Decide how likely it is that someone could be exposed; and
  • Act to remove the activity or situation, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk.

There are also expectations being placed on employers to consult with their workforce as part of the risk assessment process and communicate the findings of the assessment too.

This audit, usually carried out remotely, is designed to help ascertain the right information you need to be put into the risk assessment, highlighting what measures you have taken and what more needs to be done. 

It is carried out by one of our experienced health and safety consultants, who will then issue you with a first draft of the COVID-19 risk assessment for you to review. Once discussed and returned, we then make any required final amendments and provide you with the finished document

As a result, you will have a clearly documented risk assessment for your planned remobilisation in a format you can review and update as things change.
