Risk Assessment attestation: COVID-19

In line with UK Government requirements we are publishing the below to outline our approach to risk assessment pertaining to COVID-19:

  • We are pleased to confirm that we have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19.
  • We have established return to office principles, which prioritise keeping our staff safe.
  • Pursuant to those principles:
    • we are implementing a phased return to the office – the majority of our staff continue to work from home;
    • we are determining who should return to work from the office (whether full or part-time) in consultation with individual staff members; and
    • for those staff who are returning to work, we have taken steps to manage the risks of transmission in line with government guidance.
  • The steps we have taken to manage risks of transmission include:
    • carrying out comprehensive risk assessments for each of the four ‘zones’ in our office – our client zones, collaboration zones, business zones and back of house – which identify the risks and set out the controls in place to manage those risks;
    • consulting with our health and safety representatives about our risk assessments and listening to their feedback;
    • publishing our full risk assessments on our intranet;
    • enhancing our cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures and facilities in line with government guidance;
    • providing personal protective equipment (PPE) for staff, including face coverings, disinfectant sprays and wipes and hand sanitisers;
    • displaying appropriate signage throughout the office;
    • making all reasonable adjustments in our office so that staff can remain 2m apart; and
    • where staff cannot remain 2m apart, doing everything practicable to manage the risk of transmission.
