What is a Return to Work Coronavirus Risk Assessment?
We wrote about what to include and how to do a coronavirus risk assessment back in March 2020 when lockdown was becoming a reality. Now 6 weeks on and the country is mobilising towards a phased return to work which will include and require a return to work coronavirus risk assessment. For this return to work coronavirus risk assessment you need to think logically about your workplace and work activities.
