COVID-19 risk assessment

Results of Risk Assessment for return to work following COVID-19 lockdown

On 11 May 2020 the UK Government set out guidance for organisations returning to work during the coronavirus pandemic. The Government’s specific guidance on managing risk can be found in Appendix 1 of the PDF below. The full document can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/labs-and-research-facilities

At the LMS we have assessed the risks associated with returning to work and implemented a series of measures to reduce these risks. Our objective is to ensure a safe return to work for LMS that reduces risk to staff, students, visitors and contractors, complies with government guidance, and allows as many research activities as possible to safely resume. We will take all staff into consideration including those who cannot attend site due to vulnerabilities or caring responsibilities. This activity is under the oversight of the LMS Virtual Institute Planning and Emergency Response (VIPER) team (membership can be found in Appendix 2 of PDF below). VIPER meets weekly.
