Spot checks are helping businesses reduce the spread of COVID-19

The HSE is continuing to support businesses by carrying out spot checks and inspections to ensure they are working safely and continuing to reduce the risk posed by COVID-19 transmission.

During the spot checks, HSE provides advice and guidance to manage risk and protect workers, customers and visitors but where some businesses are not managing this, they will take immediate action.

HSE have made it clear that employers must still control the risks of COVID-19 and review and update their risk assessment. The following workplace controls remain unchanged:

  • Adequate ventilation
  • Sufficient cleaning

You must continue to consult your workforce on health and safety matters – talking to workers and their representatives helps to reduce risk.
