COVID-19: adult social care risk reduction frameworkCOVID-19: adult social care risk reduction framework

The Department of Health and Social Care has issued a COVID-19: adult social care risk reduction framework. This has been developed in response to requests from employers and concerns that workers who are potentially more vulnerable to infection or adverse outcomes from COVID-19, may not be adequately supported.

The framework focuses specifically on how employers can support workers with factors which may make them more vulnerable to infection or adverse outcomes from COVID-19 to make decisions about their risks in the workplace. These risk factors may be age, ethnicity, gender, underlying health conditions or pregnancy.

The guidance takes employers through the risk assessment process, how to discuss the outcome with employees, and measures that can help reduce risk, either individually or across the workplace.

Guidance, COVID-19: adult social care risk reduction framework, published 19 June 2020.
