COVID-19 risk assessment

Make sure that you properly assess risk and are COVID-secure...

All employers must protect people from harm, which includes taking reasonable steps to protect your workers and others from coronavirus.

This is called a COVID-19 risk assessment and it’ll help you manage risk and protect people.

HSE urges re-opening businesses to become COVID-secure

HSE is calling for businesses in Great Britain to make sure they’re COVID-secure as more sectors open their doors this weekend.

Read about our employer spot checks and some of the health and safety compliance issues arising from workplaces that are re-opening in our press release

Protecting vulnerable workers during the coronavirus outbreak

During the coronavirus outbreak the UK, Scottish and Welsh governments have defined some people as clinically extremely vulnerable (shielded).

Shielded workers are at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus.

As an employer, you have a legal duty to protect workers from harm. You should make sure you consider the risk to workers who are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus and put controls in place to reduce that risk.

HSE has produced guidance on protecting vulnerable workers from coronavirus.

Being COVID-secure: case studies required

We have received feedback from stakeholders on how they are making workplace adjustments to be COVID-secure.

We want to hear about measures you have put in place relating to social distancing, track and trace, hygiene and risk assessment

Tell us about what you have done by emailing us so we can use them as case studies to help others.
