Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

Use a list to identify the threats your company may face when it resumes operations. For each threat, decide how much it could affect your business. Use the following threat levels to estimate the impact: Negligible - limited to no business interruption or property damage Marginal - an obstacle that can affect business operations without that your company has damage, it can be an event from the surrounding neighbourhood Critical - temporary business interruptions or major damage to the building, impact on the general public Catastrophic - a disaster that affects the entire region, causing business disruptions and forcing the closure of buildings This is an event of major proportions. It can include complete destruction, multiple injuries or deaths, and a regional event, which means that external resources are unavailable or limited for long periods of time.


Identified hazard/event

Impact on the building

Mitigating Actions


Work with the building technician in managing the building inspection to ensure that the premises are safe for the return of employees and customers.

Establish an ad-hoc plan for the regular inspection of buildings and facilities using checklists for the inspection of facilities throughout the restoration phase.

References to local authorities' guidelines on returning to work to facilitate resuming work.

Cleaning and disinfection

Physical facilities

Open external doors and windows to increase air circulation in the surrounding area. Wait 24 hours before cleaning or disinfecting. If 24 hours is not feasible, wait as long as possible.

Provide all cleaning personnel with the required PPE (e.g. disposable gloves and gowns) before starting the cleaning process.

Clean floors and other touch-sensitive surfaces (e.g. handles, desks, worktops, keyboards) with soap, water and detergent (if applicable).

If there were areas in the facility that were used by a sick person, identify them and apply thorough cleaning procedures.

If more than 7 days have passed since the sick person visited or used the facility, additional cleaning and disinfection is not required.

Ensure that HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems are functioning properly.

Check that all locks are in good condition.

Clean the air vents and replace the filters if necessary.

Prepare appropriate equipment for temperature controls at all entry points in the facility.

Outside area of the facility

Sweep sidewalks, dust covers, windows and doors.

Free the landscapes surrounding the building from dust/waste.

Make sure that the building is clean and well lit.

Clean and disinfect the parking facilities.

Sanitary facilities

Clean the toilet facilities including all surfaces (counters, sinks, toilets, floors, handles and doors)

Check the stocks (e.g. soap, toilet paper, cleaning agents).

Check that the sinks and pipes work correctly.

Place hand sanitizer stations in front of every toilet and door that is frequently touched or used.

Social Distance Measures

Consider implementing these spatial changes in your institution

Obligation for employees to walk in corridors and hallways in designated one-way streets to avoid "frontal" pedestrian traffic.

Use HVAC contractors to increase the number of air changes.

Consultation with landlords on the conversion of communal toilets into single-place bathrooms to avoid close contact between users.

Upgrade conference call equipment for more conference calls.

Separation of employees who work in adjacent cubicles.

Adding partitions to tables where employees gather during breaks.

Partition walls between reception staff and other people interacting directly with the staff.

Organize the collection and delivery of packages in an area outside the building.

Establishment of isolation rooms for employees who show symptoms at work.


Signs at all entry points and key positions to effectively inform and remind employees of the new requirements.
