COVID-19 Secure.  Returning to business after lockdown relaxes - managing risk and meeting legal obligations

Existing legislation, including The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, place responsibilities on employers and employees to manage risks to employees and any others who may be affected by the work activities.  The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, regulation 3, require employers to conduct an assessment of all the risks at the workplace and in the work activities.  Employers should then implement safety measures to control the risks identified by the assessment.  The UK government has issued new guidance launched to help get Brits safely back to work and has called these COVID-19 Secure guidelines.  Number 2 of the 5 key points of these is “Carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment, in consultation with workers or trade unions”.

How can we help?  We offer specific risk assessments for your workplace and work activities, whatever your industry.  These include recommendations of control measures for managing the identified risks, which are based on the government’s COVID-19 Secure guidelines, to ensure the health and safety of your employees and anyone affected by your work activities.  The assessments will ensure compliance with legislation as well as help to lessen your employees’ concerns with returning to their workplace.  Contact us for more details and to arrange an assessment by one of our experts.
