In response to the Government’s guidance outlining the need for COVID-19 risk assessments, Colliers International has teamed up with long-term H&S partner S2 Partnership to roll-out COVID-19 self-assessments across its UK portfolio.
S2 developed an online COVID-19 self-assessment template, enabling those with management responsibility to carry out the required assessment. On completion, a report together with an action summary is generated, highlighting issues requiring attention to further reduce the transmission risk of COVID-19.
Colliers International acted swiftly to support their Facilities Managers and within a few hours of the Application being available, the FM team were undertaking COVID-19 self-assessments across the UK-wide property portfolio.
Actions generated from the COVID-19 self-assessments are automatically uploaded to Colliers International’s property risk management system, RiskWise, enabling visibility of actions required relating to reducing transmission risk.
Where required, S2’s team of specialist consultants are always on hand to attend site and provide the Colliers International team with further support and advice.
Mark Jarrett, Colliers International UK Head of Property Management, who oversaw the roll-out of COVID-19 self-assessments across the portfolio, commented: “We are very mindful of the significant challenges currently facing our clients and their employees. We strive to provide clear guidance helping ensure smooth, safe reoccupation of workplaces. The safety and wellbeing of our clients, employees and visitors to the buildings we manage is our number one priority and it is crucial that we didn’t just deliver a one-size-fits-all solution, but the ‘best possible’ solution for each building.”
