COVID-19 Return to Work Pub/Restaurant Example Risk Assessment Form


This Example COVID-19 Return to Work Pub/Restaurant Risk Assessment Form template can be used to help assessors get started when they carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment for their particular pub/restaurant.

This worked example is based on a hypothetical restaurant/pub set-up: a pub/restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining areas, main and side entrances/exits, providing for drink and food consumption at the venue, also takeaway and delivery services. The venue has its own car parking area. The business has a booking/reservation system in place.

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 requirements;

· Limits on number of customers/Rule of Six and exceptions;

· Signage to remind customers to only interact with their own group;

· Additional use of face masks;

· Use of official NHS QR code posters required from 24th September 2020; and

· Table service only.

The scope of this example may also assist cafés, bars and similar establishments where food and drink are purchased and consumed at the venue (indoor or outdoor) or offered for takeaway or delivery.

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, location and department and that all measures and controls are carried out and not just recorded on the form. It is important to make sure that “you have done enough” in your risk assessment.

This example risk assessment is designed to help a pub/restaurant business complete reasonable and practicable measures and controls to enable both employees and customers to return safely to the premises. The application of the COVID-19 risk assessment forms presumes that the hazard in respect of all these forms is the risk to staff and customers (and delivery personnel as appropriate) of being infected by the Coronavirus within the relevant location. The persons at risk in this example are the staff, customers and delivery drivers.

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 company’s / business’ 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 workplace.
