COVID-19: COVID Secure

image

As many businesses open their doors to the public for the first time in many months, many may be wondering what can be done to help ensure workers and customers are safe and the risk of coronavirus spreading in our communities is minimised.

As an employer, you have a legal duty to protect those who work for you and those who shop in your premises from harm. This includes taking reasonable steps to protect people from the spread of coronavirus. If your business does not adhere to certain regulations in helping prevent the risk of coronavirus, you may be fined or ordered to temporarily cease trading.

If your business is reopening, one of the first things you should consider doing is updating your risk assessment to manage the new potential risk of coronavirus in your workplace.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have developed a helpful guide on this which you can access here.

As well as essential tips on how to manage potential risks and common issues of concern, the guide includes a detailed document outlining everything you need to include in your new COVID-19 risk assessment, such as:

  • Workplace ventilation
  • Social distancing measures
  • Mental health, anxiety and well-being in isolation
  • Surface contamination
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

For more information on COVID-19 risk assessments, please visit the HSE’s website.
