UNISON Risk Assessment Tool  

Employers should be reviewing their health and safety risk assessments following any changes to government advice on coronavirus or following any incidents in the workplace such as outbreaks of coronavirus. 

You can use the UNISON risk assessment review tool to examine whether your employer is taking the correct steps to protect workers and to identify any concerns.  The tool can be accessed via the branch service portal following the link below.  Branches and safety reps can find out more by registering for the webinar on 3 August 2-3pm using the link below.
