We will review these guidelines regularly to ensure they are kept up-to-date with government guidance. Please see the section below on returning to work in light of Coronavirus (COVID-19) for further details.
Staff responsibilities relating to emergency evacuation and fire
11.         All staff must:

The Principal Health and Safety Officer is responsible for ensuring fire risk assessments take place and changes made where required, and for making sure there are regular checks of fire extinguishers, fire alarms, escape routes, signage and emergency lighting.
Risk assessments, display screen equipment and manual handling
14.         Risk assessments are simply a careful examination of what in the workplace could cause harm to people. The Employer will assess any risks and consider measures to best minimise any risk. The Employer will carry out general workplace risk assessments when required or as reasonably requested by staff. Managers must ensure that any necessary risk assessments take place and the resulting recommendations are implemented. The Principal Health and Safety Officer is responsible for workplace risk assessments and any measures to control risks.
15.         Staff who use a computer for prolonged periods of time should try, where possible to organise short breaks every few hours away from the computer screen, but may request a workstation assessment and/or an eye test by an optician by contacting the Principal Health and Safety Officer. The Principal Health and Safety Officer will then provide you with more details and make arrangements if you would like to proceed.
16.         Guidance on manual handling (for example, lifting and carrying heavy objects) can be obtained from the Principal Health and Safety Officer and where necessary training will be provided by the Employer, but the Employer will try to minimise or avoid the need for manual handling where there is a risk of injury.
Staff returning to work - Coronavirus (COVID-19)
17.         Ensure you familiarise yourself with the guidelines provided here alongside the government guidance.
18.         All staff must work from home where possible.
19.         If your role is considered a critical role (as defined by the government guidance), you will be informed of such and we will make arrangements for your return to the physical office or work location.
Social distancing
20.         Where you are required to return to the physical office or work location, you will be required to maintain social distancing wherever possible. To achieve this, you must stay 2 metres away from other individuals, while at work and when travelling between sites (eg from different office locations).
21.         Social distancing must be followed at all times, including in common areas, break rooms, canteens, meeting rooms and reception areas. If individuals are found to not be following social distancing rules or if the space does not allow for social distancing, we will implement staggered breaks or other measures to maintain social distancing.
22.         We may change your arrival and departure times in the office or work location to reduce crowding into and out of the workplace and will ensure that we discuss this with you first to accommodate your needs as far as possible.
23.         We will take into account the impact of any measures on individuals with protected characteristics as defined by the Equality Act 2010, namely sex, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation. This means we will ensure our measures do not adversely affect one group over another.
24.         We may also implement new seating or desk arrangements to maintain social distancing. We will review any current seating or desk arrangements to ensure that workstations are assigned to an individual and are not shared and may use floor tape, paint or signs to mark areas to help you keep a 2 metre distance.
25.         Where social distancing guidelines cannot be followed in full in relation to a particular activity, we will consider whether that activity needs to continue.
26.         In the event of an accident or emergency, you are not expected to follow social distancing rules if it would be unsafe to do so. You will be given instructions in the event of an emergency on what you should do.
Travelling to and from work
27.         We recommend that staff minimise travel. If staff must travel, we urge staff to avoid using public transport where possible. We also recommend staff that the number of people travelling together in any one vehicle is restricted to only those necessary.
Hygiene practices at work
28.         Staff must follow all hygiene measures which we implement, and may include increased frequency of hand washing, wearing protective clothing, sanitising workstations and desks.
29.         We will provide adequate handwashing facilities (or hand sanitiser where not possible) at entry/exit points and expect all staff to use these facilities frequently whenever entering and exiting the workplace.
30.         We encourage staff to bring their own food if required and to use their own utensils and drinking containers.
31.         We also expect staff to apply good hygiene practices generally, such as covering their mouths or faces when coughing or sneezing, not shaking hands or touching other people and to dispose of any waste, such as used tissues or hand wipes, responsibly.
32.         Staff are expected to wipe down surfaces at their desk regularly. We will provide adequate cleaning equipment to enable you to clean the surfaces that you have touched, such as keyboards, computer screens and telephones, and we will make sure there are adequate disposal arrangements.
Meeting rooms
33.         Where possible, staff are expected to stay 2 metres apart in meetings and to not face directly opposite each other.
34.         Meetings should be restricted to a maximum of 2 participants, or only those who are strictly necessary.
Protective clothing and face coverings
35.         Where you are already using PPE in your work activity to protect against non-Coronavirus (COVID-19) risks, you should continue to do so.
36.         In line with government guidance, we recommend against the precautionary use of extra PPE to protect against Coronavirus (COVID-19) outside clinical settings or when responding to a suspected or confirmed case of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
37.         We may require staff to wear a face covering as a precautionary measure to protect others. If you do wear a face cover, it must cover your mouth and nose. However a face covering is not a substitute or replacement for general hygiene practices.
38.         If you choose to wear a face covering, we encourage the following steps:
·    Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser before putting the face cover on, and after removing it.
·    Avoid touching your face or face covering to prevent contamination.
·    Change and wash your face covering daily if it is washable or dispose of it responsibly.
Mental health whilst working during Coronavirus (COVID-19)
39.         We take the health of our staff seriously, including their mental well-being. Whether you are working remotely or returning to the workplace, we strongly encourage you to speak to your line manager, a colleague or a member of the HR team regarding any concerns or issues you may have.
40.         If you are working remotely from home or returning to the workplace, we encourage staff to:
·    Connect with their fellow colleagues for informal chats or video calls;
·    Get regular exercise and sunlight outdoors;
·    Take regular breaks away from their workstation; and
·    Ensure they are drinking sufficient water and eating properly.
Non-compliance with health and safety rules
41.         Any breach of health and safety rules or failure to comply with this policy will be taken very seriously and is likely to result in disciplinary action against the offender, in accordance with the Employer's disciplinary policy, up to and including immediate dismissal.
