Staying COVID-19 Secure in 2020 H&S Assessment


Staying COVID-19 Secure in 2020 H&S Assessment

FBN Bank (UK) Limited regards the Health and Safety of its colleagues as being critically important.  The vast majority of our colleagues are currently working remotely, in line with Government guidance.  In order to protect the Health and Safety of the small number of colleagues working on site, the Bank has completed a Covid-19 Risk Assessment in line with HM Government Working Safely during COVID-19 in offices and contact centres document.  The Bank has consulted with colleagues on the Risk Assessment.  Key findings from the Risk Assessment and colleague consultation are:


  • During consultation, colleagues were broadly supportive of the findings of the Risk Assessment and the Bank’s planned actions to mitigate risks;
  • The risk assessment considers situations in which our colleagues may become ill on site, may spread the infection amongst colleagues or may be exposed to infection through visitors and external contractors on site;
  • The risk assessment includes actions to ensure that risks are mitigated including implementing social distancing measures throughout the building, hygiene measures and the use of PPE.  The Bank will ensure that all colleagues required to attend site are trained on the actions they are required to take and the behaviours they are required to adopt to play their part in stopping the spread of Covid-19;
  • The Bank made some adjustments to the initial Risk Assessment in response to colleague feedback.


The Bank will review the Risk Assessment regularly to ensure that any emerging risks are managed.  Colleagues will be consulted again before larger numbers commence work on site when restrictions have eased.
