HSE is calling businesses by phone and you could be the next business to get a spot check on your business. You need to make your staff aware that HSE can call by phone or turn up on at your premises to conduct a Covid Secure spot check or inspection.
Cooperation and engagement with HSE spot checks and inspections is not voluntary, if you or a member of your staff gets a call from HSE, you must answer the questions being asked.
Being COVID-secure is important in the fight against the spread of Coronavirus. HSE will take appropriate action where they find employers are not implementing the appropriate measure to deal with the risks posed by Coronavirus in the workplace.
If you are unsure about what you need to do, act now. We have information on social distancing and cleaning and hygiene practices to help your workplace put appropriate measures in place to help manage the risk.
