Welsh Government COVID-19 workforce risk assessment tool

Employers have a duty of care to protect employees’ health and safety at work and this includes understanding if they are in a higher risk category from COVID-19.

Welsh Government has published a tool, developed for use in health and social care but can be used in other workplaces  to help  consider personal risk of more serious symptoms for those who come into contact with COVID-19. Featuring a scoring table, the Tool asks a number of questions aimed at  identifying who is at higher risk from Covid-19. It asks about health, weight and ethnicity, which may increase risk of serious illness following an infection with Covid-19.

 Sectors covered include :

  • Health, social care and the public sector

  • NHS

  • Education

  • Other workplace settings

There is also a Guidance and FAQ section.
