Reopening your Community Centre after COVID-19 – Risk Assessment Templates

Community Centre risk assessments

Here at BHIB Charities Insurance we have created two important documents to support you following the government legislation changes around the reopening of community centres.

Following the return to work announcements, the immediate reaction of many charities and voluntary organisations will be to start providing services again from your community centres as soon as possible. However, it is important that your centre is equipped for reopening with safety measures in place. The current policies and risk assessments you have in place may no longer be sufficient and may need to be adapted and changed.

To support you with this, BHIB Charities Insurance have created a FREE ‘Community Centre Reopening Checklist’ and a ‘General Workplace Risk Assessment’ which we hope you will find useful. We have detailed them both below with links to download them for free.

COVID-19 – Community Centre Recovery/Reopening Health, Safety & Fire Checklist/Risk Assessment

This checklist aims to list some of the key issues that charities and voluntary organisations should consider prior to reopening their community centres. It should facilitate charities in reviewing your internal policies, risk assessments and safe systems of work to make sure they are still relevant, as well as ensure the charity has considered how staff and volunteers will return to work safely.

COVID-19 – General Workplace Risk Assessment

This generic Risk Assessment aims to support community centres to get their services back up and running. It is not likely to cover all scenarios and each charity and voluntary organisation should consider their own unique circumstances. Much more specific assessments may look quite different although many of the principles will still be relevant.

We hope you find both of these documents beneficial. If they are not directly relevant to your organisation but you know someone who it might help, please share this with them.

If you would prefer us to send you an editable word document, please get in touch and we will sort this for you.
