Wales is Re-opening – Are Your Businesses Ready?

19th June 2020 Training

Today, a range of changes were announced to the Covid-19 restrictions in Wales.

  • Non-essential shops can re-open
  • Private prayer in places of worship can restart (where social distancing is maintained and gatherings do not take place)
  • House viewings of empty properties, and house moves where a sales has been agreed but not completed, can resume.

More information on the latest changes in Wales can be found here.

Are your businesses ready to reopen?
It is essential that prior to reopening, businesses carry out a risk assessment and introduce appropriate measures to protect their staff, customers and other visitors.

Our new Covid-19: Business Re-opening e-learning course is easy-to-follow, low-cost training that explains the process of carrying out a Covid-19 risk assessment, step by step. Referencing government guidelines, this authoritative course has been developed by the respected chartered environmental health practitioner Dr Lisa Ackerley. Specifically aimed at proprietors, managers, employees with health and safety responsibilities and those aiding compliance, it is suitable for businesses of all types and sizes.

Course resources include a set of downloadable, customisable templates, signs and a practical guidance document. Participants also get a CPD certificate.

While actively encouraging businesses to communicate with their local EHO’s, we hope this course will help reduce the burden on local environmental health and public protection teams. If you would like to review the course materials before promoting this to your local businesses, please contact us on We can also provide a marketing pack to aid promotion, which will be available for you to use on your website, social media, etc.
