This Example COVID-19 Return to work Pub/Restaurant Risk Assessment Form
template has been provided to help assessors get started when they carry
out a COVID-19 risk assessment for their particular workplace, environment
The Pub/Restaurant Risk Assessment Form (Worked Example) is based on an
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. The scope of this example will also assist cafés, bars and
similar environments where food and drink are purchased and consumed at the
venue (indoor or outdoor) or offered for takeaway or delivery. This document has recently been updated to provide for the government guidance on face coverings.
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
employees and customers to return safely. 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
The “Existing Controls”, “Further Measures” and “Action Required” details
serve as hints only and may or may not apply to your particular
environment. 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.
