Businesses continue to face the challenges of keeping their employees, customers and visitors safe during the ongoing pandemic.
The Health and Safety Executive is carrying out spot checks and inspections on all types of businesses to help them manage risk and ensure they are following government guidance specific to COVID-19. They are also working with local authorities to assist them with regulation in sectors such as hospitality and retail. Spot checks are being carried out with the support of approved partners for a greater national reach, while COVID-secure inspections are being completed as part of an HSE inspector’s role of visiting workplaces during the pandemic.
We can help you prepare
Our dedicated COVID-19 Risk Assessment review is helping all kinds of businesses prepare to return to their physical workplace and fulfil their duty of care to employees. A review of your practices can help ensure you are prepared should the HSE pay you a visit.
The service is available in two tiers, the first being a validation of your COVID-19 risk assessment with regards to existing legislation, COVID-19 guidance and protocols. Then, if there are areas that require further development, we can provide the second tier – an additional consultation to assist you in completing your risk assessment and documentation.
