Risk assessments for staff

As part of our ongoing duty of care to all staff at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and as part of the national government’s five steps to working safely during coronavirus (Covid 19), risk assessments have been undertaken both for office working and for off site visits or inspections during the current pandemic. Following consultation locally with UNISON and sharing these with staff, these are now being made available publicly.
