Royal Mail Group – Coronavirus Unit Risk Assessments Update Version 9:
See attached copy of the above and accompanying communication from RMG Director of Safety Dr. Shaun Davis. This updates LTB 524/21 issued on 2 December 2021 and RMG Coronavirus Unit Risk Assessments Update V8.
In line with the ongoing commitment from Royal Mail Group to keep the CWU informed of any changes or updates made to the Coronavirus Unit Risk Assessments, CWU/HQ has been advised of the RMG Unit Risk Assessment approach which amalgamates the previously issued Functional Risk Assessments into one Risk Assessment that applies to all RMG sites.
This Risk Assessment incorporates the changes communicated in October and December 2021.
The Unit Risk Assessment Version 9 attached is based on the current key Government Covid-Secure controls (hand hygiene, ventilation, face coverings – mandatory or strongly recommended in England, and cleaning – touch points, vehicles, shared equipment etc.).
The Risk Assessment also refers to other controls such as testing and revised operational procedures which have been introduced e.g., contactless delivery.
- Touch Points
- Handling Test Kits
- First Aid
- Mental Health, Stress and Anxiety
- Musculoskeletal Disorders
- Cleaning & Waste Disposal
- Hand Hygiene
- Face Coverings
- Operational Procedures
The Unit Risk Assessment V9 has been circulated to all Royal Mail Group Unit Managers/PiCs this month.
An example copy is attached for ASR information and reference. The full working version is accessible on the RMG Intranet/Share Point site.
