Managing COVID-19 is a dynamic situation, not only from a remobilisation perspective, but from the wealth of and changing advice coming for the Government, HSE and other sources.
So, for those who have already produced their COVID-19 risk assessment, we also provide an independent review of these documents.
Our review is from a health and safety perspective within the following criteria:
- Does the risk assessment have the expected 5 stages of risk assessment?
- Is it clearly identifying the hazard, the risk and who is exposed to the risk?
- Is it mirroring the ‘hierarchy of control measures’ as required by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations?
- Are there any elements of the safety control measures that we believe would have an effect on other health and safety matters?
- Is it in line with Government Guidance (latest at date of review)?
Through this we not only use our market experience to deliver the reassurance of an independent external check on your risk assessment, but also that it is in line with the latest guidance.
So, whether as a “sense check”, gap analysis or process review, you can be confident that you have gone through the correct process to decide on the best controls for your COVID-19 risk management.
