hsAs many of us return to work, safety in the workplace is extremely important to protect our employees, clients and visitors.

As one of the leading Health and Safety Consultants in the UK, our expert team are here to help you navigate your way through the new Health and Safety challenges we are now facing due to Covid-19.

Risk Assessments
There is still a duty for all employers to manage risks in the workplace and Health and Safety legislation still applies. As an employer, you’re required by law to protect your employees, and others, from harm. We're able to help with both general and Covid-19 specific risk assessments for your workplace, providing all the advice necessary for a safe return to work for your employees.

The provision of correctly fitted RPE (Respiratory Protective Equipment) Face Masks has never been more important!

Correctly fitted RPE Face Masks is increasingly seen as an effective way to protect your staff and customers from Covid-19 transmission, especially if your business is in a medium to high risk category such as care providers, dentists and retail, but also applies to any business sector where social distancing may not be realistic and viable.

During the current unknown times of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, there is a need to understand how to work safely and protect your employees and 3rd parties (such as your customers, visitors and external contractors) from contracting or spreading coronavirus.

There is still a duty for all employers to manage risks in the workplace, Health and Safety legislation still applies. Your Coronavirus risk assessment is about the control of infection and will be different to a typical workplace risk assessment you are probably used to.

However, business owners and managers should not get distracted from considering other hazards that are present in the workplace. Especially those hazards that are hidden from plain sight, such as the potential for Legionella to be present within the buildings water systems.

face fit

Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE), such as disposable FFP3 and reusable half masks, has been identified as one of the principal means of reducing exposure to harmful airborne particulates, including the COVID-19 virus. Where “tight fitting” RPE is to be used, it is essential that a face fit test has been carried out, in all instances.

Bradley Environmental Consultants remain committed to its customers and are still operating from its 5 UK locations but with reduced resources in all functions. We continue to provide our range of core services including Asbestos Surveys and Testing, Legionella Risk Assessments and Health and Safety Consultancy.

During these unprecedented times, the National Health Service is increasingly reliant on existing Partnerships within its supply chain, especially to help procure safety equipment such as Respiratory Protective Equipment and other PPE.

Leading Asbestos and Health & Safety Consultancy, Bradley Environmental Consultants, have responded to the urgent need for help and is working in Partnership with Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust at both City Hospital and Sandwell General Hospital in the West Midlands.

Water tank cleaning and disinfectionFollowing the announcement by Boris Johnson earlier this week, we are aware that many of our clients will have taken the difficult decisions to reduce staffing levels or the closure of their buildings, to assist in reducing the spread of Covid-19.

However, please be aware that such actions can increase the chances of Legionella surviving in water systems as a direct result of low turnover of water within systems that are not being used as frequently, or as a result of existing control measures that are in place not being implemented at times of closure or low occupancy.

Further to the ongoing Coronavirus epidemic, please note that we continue to service our clients’ needs. All Bradley Environmental offices are open and fully operational.

Our mission is to keep our staff, customers and visitors safe from harm and we will react to the ever evolving situation based on Government advice. We will keep all staff, customers and visitors informed, taking the necessary action in line with the latest guidance.
