UKWA urges members to prepare for HSE COVID-security inspection

February 9, 2021

As the pandemic rolls on, Health & Safety Executive (HSE) inspectors are continuing to visit businesses to check they have COVID-secure measures in place, with warehousing, transport and logistics companies having been highlighted in particular, according to Health & Safety experts and UKWA Associate Members Citation.

All businesses that receive a call or visit must fully cooperate. COVID-compliance is a legal obligation and not meeting these standards in the workplace will result in fines of up to £10,000 and the business being forced to close its doors.

To help members ensure their business is up-to-scratch and could confidently pass an inspection, UKWA has teamed up with Citation to deliver a free 60-minute webinar, specifically designed for the warehousing, transport and logistics sector.

The webinar, to be held on Wednesday 24th February at 2pm, will share the most common employer pitfalls found by the HSE and provide a comprehensive guide to passing an HSE COVID-secure inspection.

UKWA CEO Peter Ward comments, “During these difficult times, it is important UKWA ensures that members receive maximum support and expert advice to help them navigate the many challenges they currently face. We urge members to take advantage of this free webinar to check their business is HSE inspection ready and fully compliant, with required documentation and COVID-secure measures in line with employment law obligations in place.”
