The Health and Safety Executive have announced that they will be carrying out spot checks and inspection on all types of businesses in all geographical areas to ensure that they are Covid-secure.

The HSE will carry out these checks by making, either site visits or telephone calls to businesses to discuss their arrangements and the measures put in place to keep there employees, customers and visitors safe.

There are some simple steps you can take in making your workplace Covid-secure –

  • Carry out a Covid-19 Risk Assessment
  • Maintain and promote social distancing on your premises
  • Provide adequate hand washing /sanitizing facilities
  • Talk to your team about working safely

A draft risk assessment form can be found on the HSE website, however, here at PSP Risk we are able to work with you to put together a bespoke Risk Assessment that meets the HSE requirements and your own business needs.
