Re-opening your business safely

Published: 01/07/2020

As restrictions are eased on trading, businesses operators need to assess and manage the risks of COVID-19 to meet their responsibilities to keep themselves, staff and customers safe at this time. 

This means doing everything reasonably practicable to identify and minimise any potential risks to staff and customers at your premises.

We would encourage all businesses to demonstrate to their workers and customers that they have properly assessed their risks and taken the appropriate measures to mitigate them. Welsh Government have produced guidance for retailers which is available at: https://gov.wales/retailers-coronavirus-workplace-guidance

Once you have completed the work to ensure your premises complies with Welsh Government guidance you can inform people by displaying a notice on your premises – downloadable from our website: https://www.flintshire.gov.uk/stay-covid-19-secure.

The latest information and advice for businesses is also available on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website: https://www.hse.gov.uk. If you need further assistance the HSE Contact Line is 0300 790 6787
