Use our template to help you make further considerations and adjust your measures for individual staff members who are at higher risk of becoming seriously ill from coronavirus.

Note: government guidance on living with COVID-19 says you should "consider the needs of employees at greater risk from COVID-19, including those whose immune system means they are at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19".

For this reason you may still need to carry out individual staff risk assessments, even though you're no longer required to explicitly consider COVID-19 in general health and safety risk assessments (although you may still choose to do so).

Adapt the template below to suit each individual's role, circumstances and the measures you're able to implement.  

Use a RAG-rating system to review and update the risk assessment on an ongoing basis, for example if there's:

  • A change in the individual's circumstances 
  • Updates to government guidance 
  • New measures you're implementing 

If, after the risk assessment, you need further support with how to proceed, seek specialist HR advice. 

Complete the assessment collaboratively
