COVID 19 Risk Assessment

SMSE Health and Safety Consultants have produced an example COVID19 risk assessment template which shows the approach enforcing authorities such as the HSE expect a business or workplace to take when carrying out a risk assessment for COVID-19 in the workplace.

Click on the link below to access the example COVID 19 risk assessment template:

You should use it as a guide to think about:

  • The additional  hazard that COVID 19 introduces into your business;
  • the steps you need to take to control the risks.

It is best not to just copy the COVID 19 Risk Assessment and put your company name on it, as that would not satisfy the law.  You should think about how it applies to your business and make appropriate changes to the risk assessment . Every business is different.  You shoul think about the hazards and control measures your business needs to take to maintain Healthy and Safe employees.  The control measures you introduce may have to be different from those in the example to meet the conditions in your particular  workplace. 

You should ensure that you follow the latest advice from  Public Health England incorporate this information into your risk assessment.

Feedback on our COVID19 Risk Assessment Template

"Many thanks indeed for sending this template through. I was struggling to find a decent template but this is really good and thank you once again for your help for which we are very grateful."

"These are exceptionally detailed. Probably the best example of a contractor RAMs for Covid-19 that I’ve seen so far."

"I’ve looked at a number of these assessments on line – and about 75% are incomplete, out-of-date, poorly referenced, conflicting & contradictory. Not the case with your document, credit where credit is due, I think that is a fine piece of work Thank you for sharing. " - Mark Bowen
