Are your reception and entrance areas appropriate?
Reception and entrance areas are the first point of contact for visitors and clients and, as such, need to be risk assessed. To ensure a high level of safety, these areas must meet the requirements of the Workplace Regulations 1992 and should be monitored regularly.
Among all the factors that need to be evaluated, employers need to ensure that in reception areas:
Workplace and equipment within (such as computers, phones, fixtures and fittings) are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair.
Workplace is ventilated by a sufficient quantity of fresh and purified air.
During working hours, temperature is reasonable and there is suitable and sufficient lighting
Workplace is kept clean and waste materials are removed.
Bravanark Network can help you meet those requirements. Our team will also evaluate if reception and waiting areas, entrance doors and reception desk might be improved in order to guarantee a safer working environment.
