Introduction

This guidance focusses on producing a separate risk assessment for Covid-19. You could also choose to amend existing risk assessments of activities using the information within this guide. A risk assessment covering exposure to COVID-19 will be different in each and every organisation and some sectors will have to plan for higher levels of exposure to the risk.

The purpose of this guide is to pose the questions that need to be asked so that appropriate risk assessments can be created.

Before a risk assessment can be completed, the assessor must first ask; Who is doing what and how, Where they are doing it, Why are they doing it and what they are using. Understanding the activities that are happeing within your organisation is vital to assess explosure and to qualify any subsequent control decsisions.
