Risk assessment for the University of Stirling

A risk assessment has been undertaken by the University. This maps out what measures will be put in place to minimise the risk of transmission of Coronavirus to staff and students.

Scottish Government COVID-19 Occupational Risk Assessment

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. 

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.
