This Worked Example COVID-19 Re-open Hotel/B&B Risk Assessment Form
template can be used to help assessors get started when they carry out a
COVID-19 risk assessment for their particular hotel or bed and breakfast
This document has recently been updated to provide for the Government
guidance on the following:
· NHS Test and Trace Service collection and retention of customer data
· Limits on number of customers/Rule of Six and exceptions;
· Signage to remind customers to only interact with their own group;
· Use of official NHS QR code posters required from 24th
· Additional use of face masks; and
· Table service only.
This example risk assessment form is based on a hypothetical medium sized
hotel with a restaurant and bar, and with indoor and outdoor seating. A
booking reservation system is in place for hotel rooms and dining. It
provides for individual rooms with en-suite bathrooms and suites with a
shared bathroom, and room service. This worked example can also help
assessors doing a risk assessment for a bed and breakfast establishment.
This document should only be used as a guide/hints list when applying the
COVID-19 Return to Work Blank Risk Assessment Form to your own premises.
It is imperative that any risk assessment is specific to each business,

This example risk assessment is designed to help a hotel or B&B
business complete reasonable and practicable measures and controls to
enable employees and guests to return as safely as possible. The
application of the COVID-19 risk assessment form presumes that the hazard
concerned is the risk to staff and guests (and delivery personnel as
appropriate) of being infected by the Coronavirus within the relevant
The “Existing Controls”, “Further Measures” and “Action Required” details
serve as hints only and may or may not apply to your particular
establishment. Such controls and measures will depend entirely on your
hotel’s/B&B’s current health & safety procedures and the steps that
you have taken (and will take) in respect of managing the risk of
coronavirus infection in your particular hotel or B&B.
