Evaluating the risk
Throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have advised and supported a variety of businesses in carrying out COVID-19 specific risk assessments and auditing the general arrangements.
This has included:
Risk assessments for large financial organisations
Assessments for organisation collecting equipment, to support home working
One thing we have learnt is that no two businesses, nor the control measures they need, are the same.
Each individual working environment brings its own unique challenges. Space and the ability to maintain social distancing are a constant challenge.
With many staff teams working from home, those returning to the workplace are in some cases naturally anxious about coming back to the office environment and in some cases now experiencing similar anxieties / concerns those many of us went through at the beginning of lockdown.
How we can help
Each assessment focuses on the key areas outlined in Government guidance. This also helps when guidance changes and updates are required to your risk assessment.
We can help you by:
Undertaking desktop reviews of existing Covid-19 risk assessments.
Working with you to develop a Covid-19 risk assessment.
Undertaking site visits to audit your implementation of Covid-19 risk assessment and reporting on our findings to aid in continuous improvement.
We will assign you a dedicated and competent health and safety professional who will gain an understanding of your needs and be on hand to provide any help, advice or comment you need.
Following any piece of consultancy work we are available by phone or on e-mail, so you can contact us easily, if you need our assistance or further advice.
