Employers that want to reopen their business have a legal responsibility to protect their employees and other people on site.

Use this guidance to help you carry out a risk assessment and make sensible adjustments to the site and workforce.

If you do not carry out a risk assessment, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or your local council can issue an enforcement notice.

Employees can use this guidance to check what their workplace needs to do to keep people safe.

This guidance is only for businesses that are allowed to reopen in England. Guidance from the Scottish Government, Welsh Government and Northern Ireland Assembly is also available.

If you are in an area affected by coronavirus outbreak, check Local restrictions: areas with an outbreak of coronavirus guidance.
