  • You have completed a Risk Assessment for your operations specifically related to COVID-19
  • Your employees have been consulted and trained on the COVID measures which you are planning to implement
  • You are implementing the current government social distancing measures
  • You have reviewed the number of visitors you are able to welcome at any one time, whilst maintaining the current government social distancing measures and you have implemented procedures to ensure visitor numbers do not go above this level where necessary
  • There are procedures in place to encourage and communicate social distancing measures and wearing of face coverings. (e.g. floor markers, signage)
  • In areas where there is a high risk of transmission by touching surfaces (e.g. entrances and exits), you have considered making available hand-washing or hand-sanitising stations
  • You have considered the particular needs of different groups of workers or individuals when making COVID adjustments. (e.g. socially distanced queuing not covering accessible entrance points).
