COVID-19 Secure Workplace Risk Assessments

For one of our Bridal client hearts are a clever way to remind customers to social distance

We are delighted that some of our clients are now back in business. It’s been a long time coming with much hard work and thought being put in to ensure that businesses are COVID-19 Secure workplaces, ready and safe to receive customers.

For us it’s been a fascinating time, ploughing through government, PHE and HSE guidance to find the best route for our clients and to give maximum assistance in drafting the important COVID-19 Secure workplace risk assessments.  As always, we advise our clients to involve all staff members in the drafting and  implementing of work arrangements and some of our video calls have been pretty lively…

We also advise that the process must be ongoing – we hate a dusty H&S file sitting on a shelf. We suggest pithy, short guidelines for staff with regular follow ups.

We are also providing our clients with our new “check-in” service, a vital reminder for our clients to keep monitoring their arrangements to check they are working and being actioned. We don’t like to call it nagging more of a gentle nudge.  Our clients tell us this is a service they really value as often time is limited and health and safety matters can start to slip. In a world of pandemic this can’t afford to happen.

Return to Work under COVID-19

All UK businesses have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and this has forced many to close while the Stay at Home campaign is in place.  If your company is fortunate enough to consider a return to work soon then, SoPro Safety has compiled a free checklist which may be useful.

We have published this aid to restarting a closed business to help you consider some of the arrangements that the ‘different normal’ may impose on us for the future such as social distancing in the workplace.  Hopefully it will nudge you to review the topics you need to work through to keep colleagues and customers healthy and safe.

Those who require tailored support in these difficult times only need to ask us for further guidance to help the transition from closed and furloughed to a steady and safe re-opening of the business.

You can receive this by completing the form on this page.

Stay Home and Stay Safe

COVID-19 isolating at home can mean that you may be tempted to do more and more at home a) to keep busy and b) stimulated and interested.  Take care that you do not stretch yourself too far and put yourself in other dangers.

Now that so much national effort is going into fighting the virus we need to stay safe so that we do not unwittingly add additional or different pressures on the healthcare resources by having an accident in the home or garden.

Stay safe!
