Workplace Assurance

CV19 Secure

Sam Fisher, Divisional Director at Element, explains the value of Element's CV19 Secure - Workplace Assurance auditing scheme for those organizations preparing to reopen their workplace in the UK

While the UK economy experiences the negative impacts of social distancing and lockdowns, governments and businesses continue to find ways to operate 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.
