The Scottish Government has produced guidance which includes a COVID-19 Occupational Risk Assessment Tool and accompanying guidance. The aim is to assess a staff member's vulnerability and help put measures in place for their return to the workplace.
All staff returning to work on campus are required to complete the Scottish Government COVID-19 Occupational Risk Assessment with their managers. Completion of this will give a staff member their COVID-age.
The COVID-age will allow staff to identify their individual level of vulnerability. This outcome, along with a workplace risk assessment, should be the basis of a discussion between a member of staff and their manager. The aim is to ensure a safe return to work.
A range of tools, guidance and the form can be found on the Scottish Government website.
Further Occupational Health input
In most cases, only those with a COVID-age over 80 will require further input from Occupational Health.
