Whilst nanny employers are not required to have a written risk assessment (unless they have 5 or more employees), they do have a legal responsibility to protect their nanny and others from risk to their health and safety.
This means doing everything that is practicable to minimise risk, and consulting with their nanny on what these measures are.
The Government guidance states “The people who do the work are often the best people to understand the risks in the workplace and will have a view on how to work safely”.
As nannies ourselves we created a checklist as a guide to help other nannies have this discussion with their employers and to start implementing safety measures. Each nanny role is unique, so please adapt and add to it as you see fit.
This Working Safely During Coronavirus for Nannies document is slightly more detailed and updated than our free Implementing Protective Measures for Nannies checklist.
