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.

Find out what to include in your COVID-19 risk assessment.

Protecting vulnerable workers during the coronavirus outbreak

During the coronavirus outbreak, the government has defined some people as clinically extremely vulnerable (shielded).

HSE has produced guidance on protecting vulnerable workers from coronavirus.

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.

Reopening of Community Facilities - Gov.UK advice - 1 Jul 20

Reopening of Community Facilities - Gov.UK advice - 1 Jul 20

Details

Community centres, village halls, and other multi-use community facilities support a wide range of local activity. However, their communal nature also makes them places that are vulnerable to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

This guidance is for those managing multi-use community facilities to prepare for re-opening when restrictions have lifted. It signposts to relevant guidance on a range of different activities that can take place in these spaces. More »

Currently, community centres are closed except where they are used to provide permitted activities as set out in the premises closure guidance.

Many community facilities are also workplaces and those responsible for the premises should therefore be aware of their responsibilities as employers.

This guidance will be updated as we move into the next step for easing restrictions and when other guidance relevant to multi-use facilities are produced. » Less
