Risk assessment checklists

As a business, you need to carry out a risk assessment and explain coronavirus controls to your staff.

These checklists will help you understand the requirements of running a COVID-secure business.

The government has introduced fixed penalty notices for businesses failing to comply with the COVID-19 guidance, and you can be fined from £1,000 up to £10,000.
