We at the Ryder Partnership Ltd have been working throughout the last couple of months with clients in order to assist them in ensuring safe working practices in relation to COVID-19.
We have developed Risk Assessments, Safe Working Procedures and other information such as Safety Briefings, in order for employees to be able to keep their workers healthy and to demonstrate compliance.
Now in light of the Government Guidance on Working Safely during COVID-19 published on the 11th May 2020, we are able to assist in the production of your Risk Assessments, Policies and Procedures in order for you to be able to meet the requirements.
You should also be aware that if you employ 50 or more people then you need to publish the Risk Assessment on the website and the Government has given the HSE funding in order to undertake site inspections.
