Spot checks and inspections continuing during coronavirus pandemic

HSE is continuing to conduct spot checks and inspections on workplaces.

We are carrying out spot checks by calling and visiting workplaces, often unannounced, putting employers on the spot to make sure they are following government guidelines on being COVID-secure.

In order to reach as many workplaces as possible nationally and to support the core work of our inspectors, we are working with trained and approved partners to deliver the spot check calls and visits.

Officers that visit premises will be carrying identification from their business and a letter of authorisation from HSE. If you wish to verify who it is calling you or the officer at your door is working for HSE, please call 0300 790 6896.

HSE is supporting businesses proving advice and guidance on how to manage the risks posed by the virus in the workplace. Most of the checks HSE undertakes indicate that businesses are making workplace adjustments in line with the recommended COVID-secure guidance.

Visit our website for more details on spot checks and inspections, as well as guidance on being COVID-secure.

New national COVID restrictions announced for England

On Saturday 31 October the Prime Minister announced national restrictions coming into force from Thursday 5 November for England.

To help contain the virus, the government guidelines mean everyone who can work effectively from home must do so during this time of greater restrictions.

You can find out more about homeworking and how to protect home workers.

Where people cannot work from home (such as those who work in critical national infrastructure, construction or manufacturing) they should continue to travel to work/attend their workplace.

Further guidance on the restrictions is available on GOV.UK, while information is also available on current restrictions in Scotland and Wales.

Protecting and supporting vulnerable workers during the pandemic

Employers must consider the risk to workers who are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus and put controls in place to reduce that risk.

Our website has advice and guidance on how to protect vulnerable workers during the pandemic

(updated to reflect the new national restrictions in England).

This includes the latest information on:

  • Supporting workers in higher-risk groups
  • Accessing COVID-secure precautions
  • Clinically extremely vulnerable workers

  • Pregnant workers

The annual report by HSE includes statistics for work-related ill health, workplace injuries, working days lost, enforcement action taken, and the associated costs to Great Britain.
