HMCTS is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all members of its staff, and takes its duty of care towards members of the judiciary, contractors and to court and tribunal users extremely seriously.

On 15 May 2020 the HMCTS Organisational Risk Assessment was published, setting out our approach to keeping the court and tribunal estate Covid-secure. It is available here. The assessment is currently in the process of being updated, and we anticipate the revised version will be published in November 2020.
