With huge array of complex and sometimes conflicting advice, we’ve built a simple interactive checklist to determine the steps that you need to consider in order to provide a Covid safe environment for your organisation to open their doors and return to work.

Schools capacity studies and consultancy
On the 10th May, the UK Government set out their roadmap to lift restrictions indicating schools can operate if they are organised in a way that is compatible with minimising the spread of the virus. Many primary schools could open from 1st June if safety measures are in place and schools are able to demonstrate how pupils, parents and staff can be kept safe.
We are working with schools to create Covid Secure classrooms and have developed a set of services to assist in their re-opening strategy.
Pubs & Retail: Creating additional capacity
As pubs, restaurants and the wider hospitality sector gear up for a potential gradual reopening after 4th July, they face two major headaches. In common with all other organisations, reopening requires a careful risk assessment and revised capacity plan in adherence to Covid-19 safety guidelines. Secondly, with capacity reduced, how can we re-imagine the space and increase capacity for the site to become economically more viable?
As partners to most of the UK’s largest pub and restaurant chains, Bellrock’s unique experience can add practical guidance to help steer you through the return from lockdown.
Technical Consultancy: Practical guidance on equipment maintenance in returning to work
Many organisations rapidly locked down in March, many without following full close down procedures. While most have attempted to maintain PPM protocols through the enforced lockdown, many have not been able to complete all actions, and now there is new guidance on re-occupation and the protocols around Covid-19 protection. In returning a site to full statutory compliance, there are a number of returning to work considerations in recommissioning a site’s equipment. From air and ventilation to water, heating, fire or electrical our experts can offer practical tips for you to use in preparation to return from lockdown.
Estate Resizing: Resizing your estate considering space utilisation and lease assessments
With reduced incomes, revised occupancy levels, higher safety expectations or mounting pressure on the cost base of estate, there has never been a more critical time to reconsider the strategic nature of your estate and its long-term role in your organisations mission. From short term cost avoidance in service charges, rent and rates bills, to asset condition surveys and a full space planning and operational redesign, our experts will offer you a step-by-step guide to the real issues you should be considering to ensure that you reduce the ‘here and now’ running costs and build appropriate plans to right size your estate for the post Covid-19 world.
Commercial: Practical steps in building your own risk assessment
With the UK Government now providing a roadmap for returning to work in a post lockdown phase, organisations find that the onus is squarely upon them to assess when and how a return is both desirable, feasible and safe. The need to provide and publish a risk assessment is now clear, but the steps to take that assessment will be organisation and site specific. Without a health and safety advisor to guide you through the process, how do you know that you have taken all reasonable measures necessary?
At Bellrock we exist to provide estate risk support to our customers. See how our Covid Secure toolkit will provide you with a good checklist to start your own risk assessment, and how we can support you further to turn it into a complete strategy to return to occupation of your sites.
