Safety and protection – Covid 19 Risk Assessment

During the current unknown times of the Coronavirus pandemic, there is a need to understand how to work safely and protect employees and 3rd parties from contracting or spreading coronavirus.

There is still a duty for employers to manage risks, and normal health and safety legislation still applies. Your coronavirus risk assessment is really about control of infection and it is a little different to a typical risk assessment you are probably used to as considerations will be somewhat different to the norm.

Whilst creating your coronavirus risk assessment, consideration should be given to using this opportunity to review all company risk assessments and associated safe systems of work in order to ensure that they are current and absolutely fit for the tasks for that they have been created for.

Simplistically for your coronavirus risk assessment you need to understand –

  • where your employees could be exposed to persons with coronavirus symptoms which result in a potential airborne risk (inhalable)
  • where your employees could be exposed to surfaces that might be contaminated with coronavirus (hand contact)
  • activities your employees do that might result in them touching their eyes, nose or mouth during the course of their work
  • how the actions of your employees or your business might result in airborne or surface contamination, that could spread coronavirus to 3rd parties not in your employment (typically your customers or public in the near vicinity of your work)
