Further to the BSA communication of 25 June 2020, employers have a legal duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of our own staff. Completing risk assessments for at-risk members of staff is a vital component of this. The Dental Team would like to thank you who have completed risk assessments and continue to provide support for your at-risk staff during this challenging period.
Some staff, however, are reporting that they are yet to have their risk assessment completed.
All employers need to make significant progress in deploying risk assessments within the next two weeks and complete them – at least for all staff in at-risk groups – within four weeks.
