What should businesses to consider before reopening?

  • Can you conduct a suitable Covid19 risk assessment? 
  • Is your business premise safety-proofed? (2m rule, hygiene) 
  • Can you lower anxiety levels within your staff? How? 
  • Can certain staff work from home? 
  • Do any staff fall into the ‘vulnerable’ category? 
  • Can you safely implement social distancing? 
  • What type of signage do you need? 
  • How will you ensure high levels of hygiene are maintained? 

Do all businesses need a coronavirus risk assessment?

Early government draft documents reveal that businesses with more than 5 employees must provide a risk assessment of working conditions if they intend on reopening. 

 

As the situation is rapidly changing from week to week, it’s important that employers keep up to date with government guidelines and the medical advice available online. 

We at Siren Training have been closely following the news and our team of health and safety experts have been busy working on various solutions we can offer to our diverse range of clients. 

Under UK health and safety law, your organisation has a responsibility to manage the health, safety and welfare of your employees by providing a safe workplace environment.

What steps do we need to take to stay compliant?

This starts with a risk assessment. A risk assessment that assesses the COVID 19 virus risk will allow your company to:

  • provide and maintain a work environment without risks to health and safety
  • provide and maintain safe systems of work
  • provide adequate facilities for the welfare of workers at work
  • provide any information, training, instruction or supervision that is necessary to protect all persons from risks to their health and safety arising from work
  • monitor the health of workers and conditions at the workplace for the purpose of preventing illness arising in the context of work.

What does a Coronavirus risk assessment include?

A Coronavirus risk assessment will look at the following risks in relation to COVID-19:

  • Workplace cleaning
  • Employee exposure
  • Employee travel to work including foreign travel
  • Hygiene
  • Use of changing facilities, showers, kitchens etc
  • Use of equipment 
  • Maintaining 2m distances
  • Mental Health of staff 
  • Appropriate signage 

 

Once the risks have been identified the risk assessment will outline how to control the risks using safe systems of work and the implementation of control measures.

Can I use a coronavirus risk assessment template?

You can download a template risk assessment and complete it yourself, however the approach needs to be thorough and specific to your workplace. Templates are there for you to build on to create a COVID- 19 risk assessment suitable for your premises and staff. Business owners and responsible people have a legal obligation to protect your employees. This has been made very clear by the government. 

Even when the hazard is the same (i.e COVID 19), the control measures you adopt may have to be different from companies similar in size to yours because the conditions, risk, industry, stock and occupancy may be different.

    review rating 5  They simply are amazing! I attended the full 2-day Mental Health First Aid course. The instructor, Kate, was great and excellent feedback has been given to MHFA England. Just want to give a top shout-out to Sandra who works in the back office. She was extremely kind, accommodating, listened to my requirements, fast on her feet, great follow-through and initiative to help with an issue without me even asking. A true credit to Siren! Thank you Sandra! I won't hesitate to point fellow coworkers and contacts your way! All the best!
