Lifting the coronavirus lockdown: COVID-19 workplace risk assessment

Author: Stephen Simpson

When to use this model coronavirus/risk assessment form

Use this model form to conduct a COVID-19 risk assessment to decide what measures to introduce into a workplace to ensure safe working for workers returning as the coronavirus lockdown is lifted.

Warning: This sample COVID-19 workplace risk assessment provides a small number of example entries setting out hazards that might be identified in an office environment and control measures the employer could put in place to mitigate risks. These examples are provided as guidance on how to complete the form. The specific risks will vary widely depending on the type of workplace. Each employer must carry out their own risk assessment and identify appropriate control measures. You should not simply copy the examples provided here.
