Overview

COVID-19 Health Declaration

INTRODUCTION

As businesses begin planning for a return to work and production activities start, they will have engaged in a risk assessment process, looking at possible control measures for specific tasks, travel and adopting current government guidance and requirements.

Part of the return to work process will involve obtaining a health declaration for staff, or third parties that may be visiting site (site visits are restricted). This declaration seeks to confirm employees/sit visitors, or anyone in their household are not showing any symptoms of COVID-19 before they are permitted on site. 

ABOUT THE DECLARATION

This declaration will outline key symptoms of COVID-19 and ask you to confirm you are not showing any of these, nor anyone in your household. In addition, if you are classed as a clinically extremely vulnerable person you should declare this in the relevant question. If you are unsure, please click here

The form will also ask you to confirm that you agree to your details being submitted and held by this system. 

Your details are held securely for the purpose of the health declaration only. Your details will not be shared with anyone outside of your employer or ESS. 

Once confirmation is provided to your employer, all details are removed from the system. If you have any concerns, please contact either your employer directly or our office info@ess-consultants.co.uk. To continue with the declaration, please select the button below.
