DBC corporate COVID-19 risk assessment [pdf document]

This Corporate Risk Assessment COVID-19 has been published in accordance with the requirements of the Government guidelines, Working Safely During Coronavirus (COVID-19).

As the health and wellbeing of our staff and residents remains our first priority, many of the changes we've made to our services during the pandemic will remain in place despite legal restrictions lifting. Enhanced safety measures are also still in place within our buildings. 

This risk assessment sets out the steps we have taken to comply with the Government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 and will be subject to regular review and supplemented by activity specific risk assessments and safe systems of work.
