As many organisations across the UK return to work, business owners have a duty under legislation to adhere to the ‘Working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19)’ government guidelines published on 11 May 2020 and updated on 29 May 2020. Our ‘Covid-19 Independent Review’ offers businesses an independent review and verification of their compliance to the government guidelines on working safely during coronavirus.

For all businesses that are allowed to reopen, the new government guidance helps employers, employees and self-employed individuals understand how to work safely during the coronavirus pandemic.

As an industry leader delivering audits and certification to international standards, we are best placed to assist organisations comply with the new guidelines. It provides reassurance and confidence for business owners, shareholders, employees, customers and suppliers that the appropriate risk assessment and control measures are in place and have been independently verified.

All organisations that have been verified will receive a digital certificate for use on their websites. This will add an extra level of confidence for all involved in the business.

We are working with organisations across all sectors that have returned to work. You do not need to have any ISO certification to gain access to this service.

Graham O’Geran, business development officer at Auva said: “We are proud to have launched this new service as we feel many business owners will be feeling very overwhelmed at the moment. Implementing new Covid-19 health and safety processes and procedures, managing employee relations, and restoring productivity will all be contributing to the stresses of business owners right now. We hope that our team, by putting our skills and expertise to good use, have created an independent review that will help reduce the anxiety of ensuring a safe workplace, so they concentrate on getting their business back on track.”
