This document should only be used as a guide/hints list when
applying the COVID-19 Charity Return to Work Blank Risk Assessment Form to
your own charity’s office premises. It is imperative that any risk assessment is specific to each charity
office and its location and that all measures and controls are carried out
and not just recorded on the form.
This example form has been updated to include the requirements of the NHS Test and Trace Service effective from 18 September 2020. From
this date offices must keep attendance records of all staff, volunteers and
contractors for 21 days.
This example risk assessment is designed to help a small charity office complete
reasonable and practicable measures and controls to enable employees and
volunteers to return to work safely. The application of the COVID-19 risk
assessment forms presume that the hazard in respect of all these forms is
the risk to employees and volunteers (and contractors and visitors as
appropriate) of being infected by the Coronavirus within the relevant
location, and the activities carried on there. The persons at risk in this
example are the staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors at the office, and the form also provides for a vulnerable person.
The “Existing Controls”, “Further Measures” and “Action Required” details
serve as hints only and may or may not apply to your charity’s office
environment. Such controls and measures will depend entirely on your
charity’s current health & safety procedures and the steps that it has
taken (and will take) in respect of managing the risk of coronavirus
infection in a particular workplace.
