Powersystems update on compliance following Government Guidance on Covid -19
The UK is currently experiencing a public health emergency as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is critical that employers, employees and the self-employed take steps to keep everyone safe.
COVID-19 is a public health emergency. Everyone needs to assess and manage the risks of COVID-19, and in particular businesses should consider the risks to their workers and visitors.
As an employer, Powersystems have a legal responsibility to protect workers and others from risk to their health and safety. This means we need to think about the risks they face and do everything reasonably practicable to minimise them, recognising we cannot completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19.
Powersystems have made sure that the risk assessment for our business addresses the risks of COVID-19, using this Government Guidance to inform our decisions and control measures to ensure we meet compliance.
We have also considered the security implications of any decisions and control measures that we have put in place, as any revisions could present new or altered security risks that may require mitigation.
Powersystems risk assessment is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork, but rather about identifying sensible measures to control the risks in our workplace.
Powersystems have a duty to consult our people on health and safety. We do this by listening and talking to them about the work and how they will manage risks from COVID-19.
The people who do the work are often the best people to understand the risks in the workplace and will have a view on how to work safely.
Powersystems have a health and safety representative, known as the SHEQ Manager for more information on these documents please contact the Powersystems SHEQ Manager on 01454 318 000
