Environmental Health - Top Tips for Reducing Covid Infection in your Business/Venue

    • Improve ventilation by opening windows to improve airflow
    • If your staff can work from home, encourage them to do this as much as possible
    • Keep social distancing: reduce face-to-face meetings, make sure you discourage people from crowded, rearrange your workplace to ensure proper social distancing, and keep reinforcing the 2 metre rule
    • Make sure you have an enhanced cleaning regime. Have a clear and regular schedule and use the appropriate cleaning products. If staff are asked to clean down equipment etc. check this is happening.
    • Ensure people displaying any of the classic Covid-19 symptoms – loss of taste and smell, new continuous cough, high temperature—isolate and book a test as soon as possible
    • Encourage staff to use public transport and avoid car sharing wherever they can
    • If staff share accommodation at home, consider asking them to work in a household bubble when in the workplace
    • Highlight to staff the importance of following guidance around communal areas at work, including not making each other drinks, cleaning shared equipment, distancing during cigarette breaks, etc.
    • You can also encourage staff to follow the guidance outside of work around socialising
    • Take part in regular workplace lateral flow testing if it is offered, and encourage staff with school-age children to use our free Test and Collect service
    • Encourage all staff to take up the offer of a vaccination when they are eligible
