Hospitality COVID 19 Risk Assessment

As the Hospitality sector prepares to return to work, and businesses such as hotels, restaurants, pubs and cafes start to think about producing a COVID19 risk assessment, SMSE Health and Safety Consultants have produced an example hospitality COVID19 risk assessment template which shows the approach enforcing authorities such as the HSE expect a hospitality business or workplace (such as a hotel, restaurant, public house or cafe) to take when carrying out a hospitality risk assessment for COVID-19 in the workplace.

Restaurants, Hotels, Public Houses and Cafes in the hospitality industry should use it as a guide to think about:

  • The additional  hazard that COVID 19 introduces into your hospitality business;
  • the steps you need to take to control the risks to preevent the spread of COVID19.

It is best not to just copy the Hospitaility 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 hospitailtiy business, be it a hotel, restaurant, pub or cafe, and make appropriate changes to the COVID19 risk assessment . Every hospitality business is different.  You should think about the hazards and control measures your business needs to take to maintain Healthy and Safe employees.  The COVID19/Coronavirus 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.

If you would like an onsite COVID19 Risk assessment for your hospitality business, completed by a qualified Helath and Safety Consultant, SMSE can help.
