Covid-19

The Coronavirus has created the most challenging and difficult time for us all.

With lockdown being eased and workers starting to return to work, it falls to the responsible person of businesses to ensure the safety of employees, visitors, contractors and the public and to meet the requirements of current legislation.

Each company has its own workplace challenges. Here we explore the remote services we can offer your business at this difficult time.

COVID-19 Risk Assessments

A risk assessment is a legal requirement for employers to keep their staff safe whilst they are at work and Covid-19 is another risk that must be assessed along with outlining the required steps to limit this risk - to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees in the workplace.

You should involve members of your management team and other employees in this process. You will be evaluating what safeguarding measures may need to be implemented to prevent harm to your employees and or visitors to the premises.

It is important to update or create policies for Covid-19, in this case, particularly surrounding social distancing and workplace hygiene.

Other areas to be addressed include:

  • Having guidance and instruction to follow
  • Displaying signage
  • Having hand sanitizer available
  • Sanitizing workstations and equipment
  • Eliminating / reducing visitors

This poster shows that the company are complying with the government guidelines on managing the risk of COVID-19. Ensure your company is completing the 5 steps to safer working together.

During November 2019 we moved to new larger premises in Pershore, Worcestershire. At that time we decided to appoint a new Health and Safety professional and were recommended to Emma at Walker H&S Services by our HR Consultants Cluer HR. The recommendation has turned out to be better than expected. Emma’s attention to detail is second to none. She has prepared a comprehensive plan that covers all aspects of H&S for our new premises following a detailed assessment of our requirements and staffing. We can’t speak highly enough of the service offered by Emma and her team and we look forward to working with Walker H&S Services for many years to come. Keep up the good work!
