Risk assessment tool for non-clinical staff - masks

Hi, does anyone have a risk assessment tool for non-clinical staff not wearing masks?  At a webinar recently the Chief Nurse mentioned the issue of non-clinical areas not wearing masks any more in the NHS but our OH and H&S dept want this to be based on a risk assessment undertaken by managers with their staff. Just didn't want to reinvent the wheel if there is already one out there! I'm aware that a lot of Trusts stopped mask wearing in non-clinical areas several months ago but can't find any tools to support this.

    Hi Dana - no risk assessment, but i was on a regional NHSE/I meeting where it was suggested that universal mask wearing in non-clinical areas might be continuing...i suspect we wont know until the new guidance is released (in whatever format that might be).
