Supporting our Members through COVID 19 – UPDATE 5
We hope that you are keeping safe and well and that we may soon be at the end of the current lockdown. We await the further information from the Government regarding any easings they consider can be brought in, and we will update you as soon as we have this. We thought might be useful to consider how the future might look, and what you can be doing in anticipation of reopening, as we all start to plan for getting back to normal (or whatever the new normal might look like!)
- Reopening: this will of course depend on any easing of the lockdown, but you could start to plan now for how you might be able to carry out some or all of your activities taking into account the potential need for social distancing
- Risk assessments: it is sensible to review all your risk assessments for each of your activities now, as well as any pertaining to your staff, and consider if these need to be revised or rewritten to allow for ongoing social distancing. Consider specific Covid-19 measures and if separate specific risk assessments are required.
- PPE: will we need to wear it? We do not as yet know, but would you be able to carry out your activities if this is a requirement?
- Economics: can you afford to operate and provide the activities even with social distancing requirements? Or is it better to wait until you can resume fully?
We appreciate that we do not have the answers to these questions now, and much will depend on the Government advice and next steps on emerging from lockdown which we hope we will obtain this weekend. AIM is here to support you, and we will keep you updated and suggest ways on how best you can seek to resume your normal business activities.
