COVID-19 risk assessment

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

On 17 August 2021 the UK Government set out updated guidance for organisations returning to work during the coronavirus pandemic. The Government’s specific guidance on managing risk in labs and research facilities can be found here.

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 now under the oversight of the LMS Pandemic Recovery (PANDR) Group (membership can be found in Appendix 1 of the PDF below.
