COVID-19 Workplace Self-Assessment for Occupiers

COVID-19 is a coronavirus that has had a significant impact on the global and national economy. As part of the safe remobilising of workplaces, it is important that risk assessments are completed to ensure appropriate control measures are in place to minimise risk.

Controlling the transmission and spread of COVID-19 is a key social and reputational risk and it is important that appropriate measures are put in place to reduce the likelihood of spread.

Recent Government guidance has stipulated that workplaces must complete a risk assessment for COVID-19, showing that controls have been implemented to manage the risks within the workplace.
