Hospitality Preparation Risk Assessment
Whilst the hospitality sector remains under lockdown, we all hope that the government will be able to announce relaxations in the next few weeks.
In preparation for the first moves towards normality for the hospitality sector we have now prepared a guidance template - Covid 19 Infection Control Risk Assessment with new content specifically relevant to that sector.  We mentioned this in our Info Update 2020/32
All our Health & Safety clients have free access to this document through their online login for the document library on our website.
If you are not a Health & Safety client and would like to discuss how to obtain this level of support, please do contact us on 03456 446006 or
Fire Warning
You have seen us referring many times to the need for enhanced cleaning with substances that destroy the Covid-19 virus (e.g. soap, bleach, alcohol at min 70%). Please remember that alcohol is highly flammable in liquid and vapour form. We have heard reports of workers applying alcohol to their hands and then carrying out tasks before it has fully evaporated. If you are then in contact with a source of ignition e.g. a flame, spark or spark caused by a static discharge, there is the possibility that serious burns may be incurred.
Please make sure your methods of application allow for complete evaporation before commencing activities where such exposure may occur; and most importantly, tell your workers.
