COVID-19 Secure Workplace Risk Assessments
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.
