How to meet the COVID Secure Requirements?

Helping you meet your COVID Secure requirements

Here at Line Business Services we have a team of consultants that have experience across a very wide range of business sectors. Our consultants can work with you to assist in the undertaking or review of your COVID-19 risk assessment. This will give you as the employer, your employees, and customers the confidence that this risk assessment has been done correctly and has been independently reviewed.

As with a lot of Health & Safety requirements, having input from various people within your organisation is very important. Likewise having a fresh pair of eyes with experience in various work sectors can be helpful too.

The government’s guidance where possible is to work from home, but for businesses like manufacturing, factories, plants, warehousing, and construction this requires people to be in their workplace. This link gives guidance for 14 different types of workplace on what employers can do to make their site COVID Secure, but it is also worth ensuring that businesses take a pragmatic approach.

We have all seen the signs advising on social distancing and of course, staff need reminding of this in their workplace. Simple procedures can be drawn up covering things like:

  • One-way system around the workplace
  • Use of welfare facilities
  • Looking at staff bubbles (teams that are not all in the office at the same time)
  • Staggered shift patterns
  • Increased cleaning procedures
  • Personal hygiene requirements
