Monaghans COVID-19 Risk Assessment

Monaghans have updated our management arrangements for the COVID-19 Secure Guidance issued in July 2020 regarding and in accordance with GOV.UK requirements have completed a risk assessment for a phased return to working environments as follows:

Stage 1 – Continued staff homeworking wherever possible with occasional office visits/working and authorised site & premises inspections with Line Manager approval.

Stage 2 – Phased reopening of offices with combined homeworking and office working (potentially involving shift patterns) and some continued homeworking by selected staff including vulnerable staff or those with vulnerable family members.

Stage 3 – Full re-opening of offices.

Stage 1 has been implemented under enhanced internal H&S procedures for lone/remote working which have been communicated, to all staff and made available internally via our intranet platform. The results of our risk assessment have also been communicated to all staff and remain available internally.

Stages 2 & 3 will be implemented under new internal H&S procedures for pandemic working arrangements which have been developed by the Monaghans H&S Team and the Director responsible for H&S, and will be issued to all staff internally in preparation for Stage 2. The procedures and associated arrangements will be supported by appropriate staff and visitor inductions.

GOV.UK COVID Alert Level in July 2020 is Level 3 and this Alert Level will change and be reflected in our planned return to work and before deciding to move from one stage to another. The current Alert Levels are:

  • Level 1 COVID-19 is not known to be present in the UK
  • Level 2 COVID-19 is present in the UK, but the number of cases and transmission is low
  • Level 3 A COVID-19 epidemic is in general circulation
  • Level 4 A COVID-19 epidemic is in general circulation; transmission is high or rising exponentially
  • Level 5 As level 4 and there is a material risk of healthcare services being overwhelmed

Our updated  ‘Staying COVID-19 Secure in 2020’ Poster has been displayed within our office receptions and on staff notice boards. In accordance with GOV.UK requirements for companies with more than 50 employees, this section of our website makes the above ‘Staying COVID-19 Secure in 2020’ poster and risk assessment publicly available.
