Covid-19 | Risk Assessment for Building Cleaners / Cleaning Staff

This checklist for the preparation and documentation of the risk assessment covers frequently occurring hazards in relation to biological hazards caused by a coronavirus. Basic measures are proposed here to defend against them. "The employer is obliged to take the necessary measures for occupational health and safety, taking into account the circumstances that affect the safety and health of employees at work. He must check the effectiveness of the measures and, if necessary, adapt them to changing circumstances. In doing so, he shall strive to improve the safety and health protection of employees". (§ 3 Occupational Safety and Health Act). Determining the hazards at the workplace, assessing them and determining measures to prevent or minimise them is known as risk assessment (§ 5 ArbSchG). This risk assessment must be documented.
