The Trust wants to ensure that every member of staff is kept safe and protected whilst working at the Royal United Hospital throughout the Covid-19 pandemic period.

To help us understand what is needed for individuals to be safe and protected we have previously requested that certain groups of staff undertake a Risk Assessment. The Trust now requires all members of staff to undertake a short risk assessment to determine if there is any further action needed.

For many staff there is a low risk of serious complications from Covid-19. The aim of asking all staff to undertake the risk assessment is so that we know that we are doing all that we can to provide a safe working environment for you.

Calculating your COVID Age

As part of the risk assessment you will be asked to submit your COVID Age. This is calculated on the basis of your current age, gender, ethnicity and any underlying health conditions. It will help indicate your risk category.

For the COVID Age calculation you will need to know your Body Mass Index (BMI). To calculate this, please use the BMI Calculator.

To calculate your COVID Age, you will need enter your information into ALAMA's online calculator. Please note, you will need to scroll down the page to get to the calculator.

Once you have calculated your COVID age, please complete and submit the Risk Assessment form below. Please note that the personal details provided will only be used to enable the Trust to assure itself of who has completed the risk assessment.
