As the UK eases Coronavirus lockdown, governments and businesses are now turning their attention to the challenge of how to re-open their physical workplaces, in a compliant and safe way.
Element provides independent audits for UK businesses’ COVID-19 workplace risk assessments. The CV19 Secure - Workplace Assurance scheme will audit your workplace risk assessment, identify any gaps and areas for improvement. It is designed to demonstrate to all occupants and stakeholders within an organization that their workplace Coronavirus policies, practices, and risk assessments are compliant with UK government guidance and best practice measures.
Upon completion of the audit, your risk assessment and control measures will be scored against our five-star rating based upon UK government guidance. Your rating will appear on a certificate of compliance that can be publicly displayed. The certificate includes a QR code, to allow anyone to verify the current status of the certificate at any moment in time.
Our audit protocol covers five areas:
- Social distancing
- COVID-19 related Health & Safety (including PPE)
- Employee engagement
- Related risk management systems
- Efficiency impacts
Examples of control measures to consider can include:
- Workplace reconfiguration
- Access and egress
- Signage and notification
- Other health and safety policies & safe restart protocols
Element also provides COVID-19 workplace risk assessment services if required.
