The UK Government issued health and safety guidance for the management of Covid-19 at work, aimed at businesses restarting or ramping up their activities after a period of lockdown.
BeA FSL’s strategy for managing the risk of Covid-19 is based on integrating the Government guidance with our current standards for managing and complying with H&S law, Common law duty of care and good Industry practice.
The Key Action points below form the basis to prevent harm to our employees and others that may be affected by Covid-19 and business sustainability.
Our Foundation for controlling risk of COVID is based on The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulation (3) to undertake suitable and sufficient risk assessments and Regulation (4) to apply the Principles of Prevention, often referred to as (the hierarchy of risk control) in summary Eliminate, Reduce, Isolate, Control and PPE (ERICP).
Therefore response and action is based the ERICP approach, I suggest the change of behaviours required to manage Covid-19 will be adopted more effectively if this approach is continued and is fully explained, understood and adopted by our employee’s.
Key Actions (aligned with ERICP)
We will review on a monthly basis, our Covid-19 Risk controls in line with Government guidance on risk level and actions required, lessons learnt over time and Industry good practice
