Individual risk assessments
If you've been shielding, or returning to the workplace, you can now complete an Individual Risk Assessment that will assess your risk to Covid-19 and to identify any personal adjustments. However, where possible, you should continue to work from home.
Whilst the priority is to risk assess employees returning to the workplace following shielding, the risk assessment is relevant to all staff, including those who are returning to normal duties after COVID-19 related restrictions, those who are returning to the workplace after working from home, those that continued to work from the workplace or anyone who has a concern about a particular vulnerability to COVID-19. If your score places in you in the amber or red range, you should speak to your line manager.
What happens next?
You should discuss your individual risk assessment with your manager. This will support you and your manager to assess the risks and agree working arrangements on your return to work.
After reading and completing the Individual Risk Assessment, your line manager should implement measures to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 as much as possible by:
- Ensuring all employees returning to the workplace complete the COVID-19 Individual Risk Assessment to identify the employee’s vulnerability level.
- Explaining the safe systems of work and workplace risk assessments specific to their place of work.
- Having a constructive conversation about how work can be enabled safely on return.
- Reaching an agreement on working duties on return to the workplace.
