Reopen your business safely

Employers that want to reopen their business have a legal responsibility to protect their employees and other people on site. The UK government has developed a new tool and guidance for businesses to check what their workplace needs to do to keep people safe.

Businesses should use this guidance to assist with a risk assessment and make sensible adjustments to the site and workforce. If businesses do not carry out a risk assessment, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or relevant local council can issue an enforcement notice. This guidance is only for businesses that are allowed to reopen in England.
