Covid-19 HSE Risk Assessment

Covid-19 Health and Safety Risk Assessment

Carrying out risk assessments during the pandemic

As updated by the hse they have released a document outlining all the necessary precautions you must take in a workplace during the pandemic to reduce the risk of the virus transmitting. This blog will break it down in a simple easy to read form so you can digest the information and become aware of what is involved in a covid-19 risk assessment. I will explain what the aim of the risk assessment is, who is involved in the risk assessment, how you can keep your workplaces safe.

After that I will explain how we here at Libben have made our workplace as safe as possible and the extra precautions we have taken. All our venues are now open, even with restrictions we aim to provide the best possible experience for delegates when they arrive on our health and safety courses.


This is an HSE risk assessment that ensures reasonable processes are in place to protect workers from coronavirus. It helps you manage risk to ensure people are protected. You should also consider in your risk assessment individuals more at risk of being infected and also individuals who may be more adversely affected by catching the virus.


 It’s the employer’s responsibility to protect the health and safety and also the welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business.


Workplaces should point out and identify where the transmission could occur in certain situations. They should then think who is at risk of the virus. The likelihood of someone being exposed to the virus. Control the risk then by removing the activity or situation that could expose any individual to the virus.

-         Staggering shifts

-        Providing extra handwashing facilities

-         Additional hand sanitizing bottles

-       Putting in place social distancing measures


If your business has less than 5 employees, you do not have to document or write anything down but it may help if you do. 

Remember if you are experiencing any symptoms of coronavirus:

Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.  Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test. Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.

 Our Changes – What Have We Done at Libben?

So we have had to introduce social distancing into our classrooms meaning tables and chairs have been spread out to ensure we are following the guidelines. 

We have also provided more hand sanitising stations across the office and in the training rooms. 

All delegates and staff must have their temperature checked upon arrival and they are given the option to scan our QR Code which links with the NHS track and trace app.
