Covid-19 Risk assessments
COVID-19 is a public health emergency. Everyone needs to assess and manage the risks of COVID-19. Employers must consider the risks their employees face and do everything reasonably practicable to minimise them, recognising that they cannot completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19.
Employers have a duty to reduce workplace risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures; your risk assessment must address the risks of COVID-19 and detail control measures you intend to put in place.
Failure to complete a risk assessment which takes account of COVID-19, or completing a risk assessment but failing to put in place sufficient measures to manage the risk of COVID-19, could constitute a breach of health and safety law.
We now offer Covid-19 Risk assessments enabling your company to welcome back workers into a structured and safe environment. Please contact us for further details.
