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.

Coronavirus: Lone Working

If you are still working during this period you must still follow government guidelines around social distancing.
For some transport, construction, manufacturing and trades activities this may lead to an increase in lone working as you are adapting to the current requirements.

There is a lot of talk and speculation about masks currently surrounding Covid-19. There is a clear difference between a surgical mask, a face covering and a face mask such as an FFP3 or FFP2.
