City Services COVID 19 Secure Risk Assessments

Gloucester City Council suspended some services and activities in March 2020 as a consequence of the COVID-19 Pandemic. As the lockdown is easing and government guidelines are changing, some of those services and activities are able to return.

The City Council is implementing a recovery process which seeks to ensure that when services and activities return, they return in a way that maintains and protects the safety of service users, the public and our staff. In all cases the City Council will comply with Government Guidance and ensure compliance with the COVID-19 Secure Guidance which is available here

Before any service or activity returns, the City Council prepares a comprehensive Risk Assessment. Service Managers are required to consult their staff about the risk assessment and also consult service users, where this is possible and practical. We also consult with Trades Unions. A service or activity will only return when the Risk Assessment has been approved by senior councillors and managers. All approved Risk Assessments are published on the City Council’s Website and they are also available to City Council Staff via our internal staff intranet.

The risk assessments set out below have been through the process described above and have been approved. These services and activities can now resume in a COVID-19 Secure way.
