Covid- 19 Working Safely – HSE Risk Assessment

14 Jul 2020

All employers must protect people from harm. This 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.

You must:

  • identify what work activity or situations might cause transmission of the virus
  • think about who could be at risk
  • decide how likely it is that someone could be exposed
  • act to remove the activity or situation, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk

If you have fewer than five employees, you don’t have to write anything down, but it might help if you do. Find out more about managing risk and risk assessment.

 

We have produced guidance to help you work safely (be COVID-secure) and manage the risk associated with running your business at this time.

 

It includes practical measures you can take, for example:

  • putting in place social distancing measures
  • staggering shifts
  • providing additional handwashing facilities
