COVID-19 risk assessment
Businesses still have a legal duty to manage risks to those affected by their business. The way to do this is to carry out a health and safety risk assessment, including the risk of COVID-19 transmission, and to take reasonable steps to mitigate the risks you identify.
You should use the guidance outlined below to consider the risk within your premises and decide which mitigations are appropriate to adopt. The Health and Safety Executive has published guidance on undertaking risk assessments, including some key areas to consider such as promoting good hand hygiene, identifying areas where ventilation needs to be improved, cleaning surfaces that people touch regularly, and communicating your measures to staff and customers.
Remember that anyone with coronavirus symptoms needs to self-isolate and arrange an NHS (PCR) test. Close contacts of people with coronavirus also need to self-isolate.
