Risk assessment to minimise covid-19 transmission in the workplace.

Stay covid-secure.

Management must protect people from harm, which includes taking reasonable steps to protect employees from all influenza-like illnesses.

This is called a COVID-19 risk assessment; a workplace risk assessment is intended to manage risk and protect people. It is required to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken by employers to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the course of work.

The lowest risk position is likely to be working from home albeit there are many occupations where this is not reasonably practicable. If there are fewer than five employees in the organisation, there is no need to write anything down, but it might help to do so.
