#COVID19: Can you open for business safely? New government online tool available

The UK Government has developed an online tool to help businesses in England to reopen safely during coronavirus. It encourages carrying out a risk assessment and helps identify workplace adjustments.

Employers have the legal responsibility to protect their employees and other people on site, such as customers and visitors. This tool will help businesses to easily find out what they should do.

Employees can also use this tool to check what their workplace needs to do to keep people safe.

If a business does not carry out a risk assessment, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local council can issue an enforcement notice.
