DHSC COVID-19: adult social care risk reduction framework - Published 19th June 2020
The adult social care (ASC) risk reduction framework has been developed in response to requests from employers and concerns that workers who are potentially more vulnerable to infection or adverse outcomes from COVID-19, may not be adequately supported. However, we know some employers will already have a robust process in place. The framework focuses specifically on how employers can support workers with factors which may make them more vulnerable to infection or adverse outcomes from COVID-19 to make decisions about their risks in the workplace.
