NHS COVID-19 app launched across England and Wales

The NHS COVID-19 app has launched to help control COVID-19 transmission alongside national and local contact tracing. From today certain businesses in England are required by law to display NHS Test and Trace QR codes so customers with the NHS COVID-19 app can use them to check-in.

QR codes will help businesses meet their legal requirement to log contact details and allow public health leads to send alerts based on whether people have checked in at venues.

The government will be supporting businesses and venues to display the QR codes, which can be downloaded here

Businesses who are already using their own QR system are being encouraged to switch to the NHS Test and Trace QR code.

Conduct your business safely during coronavirus – guidance tool

Employers in England 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.

Employee return-to-work tool

The Government has developed a tool to help employees in England easily assess if they can return to work. The tool guides employees through questions that may influence their ability to go back to work safely. Employers can share this tool with employees to aid discussion on how employees can return to work safely. Find out more here.

Risk Assessments 

You can use a risk assessment to help you keep a simple record of: who might be harmed and how, what you’re already doing to control the risks, what further action you need to take to control the risks, who needs to carry out the action and when the action is needed by.

Some useful templates can be found on the Health and Safety Executive's website here
