COVID-19 risk assessments

This Risk Assessment has been prepared in response to the emerging risks associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It assesses the risks associated with COVID-19 in a large open plan office with minimal staff within it. It is vital that a record of risk assessments is maintained.

This document has been produced to comply with all relevant Health and Safety legislation and current Government rules and guidance specifically related to COVID-19.

As we learn more about the virus and working practices change, we will reassess risks, review procedures and update recorded assessments as necessary. Any such reassessment and subsequent review should include all relevant employees, who should also be informed of resulting changes.

Any further guidance should contact the Health and Safety Advisor.
