As businesses open up and more people return to work, sadly we are also seeing an increase in positive cases of Covid-19. Whilst this is not entirely unexpected, a major area of concern is where Covid-19 can spread in the workplace.

All employers are expected to protect people from harm. This includes carrying out a risk assessment to decide what reasonable steps you need to take to protect your workers and others from coronavirus (COVID-19).

Risk assessment should be bespoke, detailed and specific to your workplace. A generic risk assessment is likely to be ambiguous and lacking detail. For example, it might not identify employee health conditions, sufficient cleaning controls for particular work areas and circumstances or adequate ventilation requirements.

It is essential your risk assessment reflects the current public health regulations and guidelines for the nation you are in.
