Are employees and volunteers of your charity returning to work at one of
the charity’s shops, administrative offices or other charity workplaces
after a period of absence due to Covid-19?
If so, to meet Government requirements, you first need to carry out a risk
assessment for each individual workplace and then to monitor staff and
volunteers on a daily basis to check whether they can safely attend work on
The following templates are now available: a blank Risk Assessment form;
worked example Risk Assessment forms for a charity shop and a charity’s
office; a COVID-19 Daily Health Check Email Declaration form for members of
staff or volunteers; a Daily Health Check Declaration and Attendance record
for collation and recording of those daily declarations; and a Government
poster to be displayed at a workplace, confirming that the employer has
followed the Government’s “Working Safely During Coronavirus (COVID-19)”
The worked example risk assessment forms are designed to help assessors get
started when they carry out the risk assessment for their particular shop
or office and should only be used as a guide/hints list when applying the
COVID-19 Blank Risk Assessment Form to their own particular premises. The
idea of the worked examples is to prompt the identification of hazards,
those at risk, controls undertaken and further actions.
