Covid-19 Workplace Risk Assessment - Consultancy Visits

At present The Bradley Group is offering remote support and will continue to do so for clients who do not currently wish us to visit sites due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Consultants can visit a client’s site as long as appropriate and suitable social distancing controls are in place and adhered to at all times throughout the visit. 
 
The following risk assessment has been carried out by the Principal Consultant to ensure all risks are minimal via the correct controls. 
 
All clients requiring a face-to-face visit must provide adequate assurance that social distancing measures are in place on their sites and are being followed correctly. TBG can help set this up remotely prior to any visit. 
 
If at any time a consultant feels that social distancing measures are inadequate, then they must politely leave site and support remotely until appropriate controls are in place.

What are the hazards Who might be harmed and how Control Measures Comments 
Covid-19 (Coronavirus)
An infectious virus caused by a newly discovered Coronavirus that is spread primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Who: Consultants contracting Covid-19 whilst visiting clients.

How: People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.

These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. 

Social Distancing
Ensuring a gap of 2 metres is kept between the consultant and client at all times within the workplace as recommended by Public Health England and the UK Government.

No physical contact with client in terms of handshakes.

No car sharing for consultants and keep visits as one consultant per visit to reduce contact.

Clients to send their Covid-19 risk assessments or adequate information prior to any visit.

Consultants to adhere to client’s social distancing measures in line with PHE guidance.

If the consultant feels social distancing is not adequate, then they must leave site and continue support remotely until controls are in place.

   

Hand Washing

Hand washing facilities provided for consultants on each site to use prior and after their visit.

Disposable paper towels used to dry hands and be discarded after use.

PPE

Public Health England has issued guidance for the use of PPE in health care settings. In all other settings people are asked to follow the social distancing rules and practise good hygiene methods.

Tight-fitting respirators (FFP3) require a good seal on the wearer’s face.

A face fit test is required to ensure the respiratory protective equipment (RPE) can protect the user.

Wearers must be clean shaven and have tight seal around the mask.


Although facemasks are not required so long as social distancing and good hand hygiene is in place, consultants may use an FFP3 face mask where appropriate.

FFP3 masks will be available from the office.
