    Risk Assessment

    Our team conducted the below risk assessments in order to ensure the safety of our staff as they return to work on a voluntary basis.


    • Company name: LEYTON UK LTD
    • Assessment carried out by: SUE BENCE
    • Date of next review: 05 JANUARY 2022
    • Date assessment was carried out: 05 JANUARY 2022
    What are the hazards?Description and consequenceWhat action do you need to take to control the risks?Who needs to carry out the action?

    Lack of staff awareness around the spread of COVID-19

    If staff are not aware of how the virus is spread, they will not take the appropriate measures to contain the transmission of the virus and a number of staff members will become infected with the virus.   Our vulnerable employees are most at risk

    We need to communicate with staff members via email communications and publishing posters around the office.
    HR and office managers have provided guidance and established protocols on the workplace measures (entry to office, hand sanitiser, face masks). An information guide was shared with staff prior to returning to the office by email, video walk through, HIVE, and online mandatory training.
    The office has been furnished with notices and posters while intranet communications and verbal manager briefings were established to disseminate information.
    Posters and other signage have been placed above office equipment to indicate high risk touch point i.e., water machine usage is allowed but a warning sign about it being high touch point has been installed.
    Signs are updated as guidance changes

    HR and OM
    The spreading of COVID-19 within the officeWe understand that this is a highly contagious virus and that crowding will increase the transmission rate of the virus, making a number of staff members ill.   Our vulnerable employees are most at risk
    We have inserted perspex shields between desks, put up signage for mask wearing, are hand sanitisers are installed in multiple locations throughout the offices. Cleaners provide a ‘fogging’ service to reduce bacteria spreading.
    We are managing the occupancy of our offices to ensure they do not become too full through mandatory desk booking mandatory, in compliance with track and trace measures. This also enables us to notify staff who have had close contact with those tested positive for Covid19.
    Mask wearing is mandatory when staff are away from their desks.
    Due to the nature of the business, we have determined that other PPE, in addition to masks, will not be necessary as people are able to socially distance quite easily.
    Change made: Under new guidelines- those that are able to, must work from home (10th December 2021).

    External contractors inserted Perspex shields and applied barrier tech to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus.
    HR and the COVID-19 Task Team took necessary steps to mitigate the spreading of Covid19 within the office.
    All staff to comply with mask wearing and adding their whereabouts on desk booking.
    Congestion at entry and exit of office 

    Staff are encouraged to minimise the amount of times that they enter and exit the building in one day.
    We have implemented entry and exit procedures as well as a one-way system of moving through the office in order to prevent close contact with staff members.
    We have signs spaced out on floors in order to remind staff to keep socially distanced.

    All staff to adhere to the one way system and maintain social distance with colleagues.
    The spreading of COVID-19 due to high touch points (i.e. toilet doors, printers, cell phones) There are numerous high risk touch points through-out the office which require staff contact and therefore there is an increased risk of transmission of the virus in this way. The result could be a high transmission rate within the office. 

    Hand sanitiser has been provided through-out the office
    A Clean Desk Policy has been implemented so that we can ensure a thorough clean of desks and other surfaces around the office.
    The offices are regularly sprayed with Barrier Tech – a substance which, when sprayed on surfaces, creates an environment unconducive to the survival of the virus.
    The offices are cleaned every evening and is deep cleaned every Wednesday and every Saturday.

    The cleaners undertake enhanced cleaning activities.
    Staff are responsible for implementing the rules in the Clean Desk Policy. 
    The spreading of COVID-19 due to the contained nature of certain areas certain communal areas in the office (particular risks in using meeting rooms, kitchen, lift, toilet) and as a result of bad ventilationThere are numerous areas within the office which, by their nature, are more enclosed and encourage groups of people to gather together. This environment may lead to a higher transmission rate between people which would result in multiple staff members becoming infected.

    We have closed every second bathroom to limit the number of people in there at a time.
    We have limited the number of people who may occupy a meeting room to the following: 1 person to occupy meeting rooms in the office, 4 persons to be seated in the Boardrooms with 6 standing along the border of the room (ensure 1.5m to 2m distance).


    Only 2 people to be in the kitchen and only 6 at both tables.
    Staff are encouraged to keep windows open but reminded to close windows before they leave.
    Operation of the air con is the responsibility of the facilities manager who has confirmed that an assessment of the system was carried out. Enhanced filter changes will occur every month and checks will be conducted. There will be additional running of air con equipment to keep the air flow going out of hours.
    We have advised staff not to use lifts but if this is not possible, to reduce the amount of people in the lift to the number suggested by the facilities manager.

    HR arranged for signs to be published
    Non-compliance by building management of COVID-19 secure rulesWhile we ensure that our office is COVID-19 secure, we need to ensure that the greater parts of the building are also safe, otherwise there is a high risk of transmission for staff entering the office.

    We have read through guidance from the facilities manager and where applicable and possible, have aligned our guidance.
    We have sought and received clarification on the one way system into and out of the building and aligned our one-way system with that of the facilities manager.  
    We have discussed with the facilities manager that we will be applying the barrier tech technology in the bathrooms on our level and he has agreed that this is fine and that no bleach products will be used in that area (which could counteract the fogging).

    Building management and alignment by HR and OM
    Spreading of COVID-19 due to new staff members joining from overseas and locallyThe business is still recruiting and therefore needs to consider the locations from which our new recruits come so that we can consider how to reduce risks of transmission and keep new joiners as well as current staff members safe.

    We will keep up to date with quarantine and self-isolation rules, and advise new joiners as and when they begin their employment contracts.
    For new joiners joining from local locations, we will share information on measures we have put in place, categorise them according to their vulnerability and find out how they will commute to and from work.
    Every new joiner will be required to complete mandatory training on best covid secure practices, through our intranet. This is addressed on induction days.

    HR and Managers to inform new joiners and implement rules
    Spreading of COVID-19 due to client meetings and external parties attending the officeWe cannot control the safety measures taken by external parties and therefore it may be that these external parties are at a higher risk of being infected. We acknowledge that coming into contact with people increases the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and so limiting the number of people our staff come into contact with will reduce the risk of exposure.

    Client meetings will not take place in the office. These will have to be conducted via video conferencing.
    No outside third parties or customers to access the office.
    No personal deliveries are allowed at work so as to reduce transmission by packages and external parties.
    Staff are advised to carry out bi-weekly lateral flow tests before coming into the office.
    If staff do attend external meetings, they must follow the protocols of that business.

    Staff to inform clients and other third parties not to attend the office.
    Staff to not order personal deliveries to the office.
    Staff to comply with all mitigating measures, and take regular lateral flow tests.
    Spread of COVID-19 as a result of a staff member becoming sick When a staff member becomes sick, the chances of transmission occurring more rapidly within the office are higher.

    We will shut down and deep clean the office if it is believed that Covid was caught in the office.
    Our COVID-19 Health & Safety Policy must be followed to contact all those who may have come into direct contact with the infected staff member.

    Instructions will be issued by management
    Suspected cases of COVID-19Staff members might begin to present symptoms similar to those of COVID-19 and we need to know how to respond to them so we reduce the risk of transmission.

    Staff members should leave the office and self-isolate until a diagnosis has been made.
    Staff must follow the internal COVID-19 Health & Safety Policy for further information.

    Staff members who suspect they may be infected.
    Spread of COVID-19 due to a lack of personal hygieneIf staff to not regularly wash their hands and practice measures such as sneezing into their elbows, there is an increased risk of transmission of the virus.

    Hand sanitiser provided throughout the office and signs to remind staff to wash hands regularly are printed around the office.

    Staff members
    Spread of COVID-19 due to public and other modes of transport usagePublic transport is a major risk due to the contained nature of public transport spaces. If staff are infected by the virus while using public transport, there is a high risk that they will transmit the virus in the office to more staff members.

    Staff are encouraged to walk/ cycle to work.
    Staff are encouraged to wear face masks on their travel to work.
    If staff travel in the same car – they are advised to sit on opposite sides of the car, with one person driving and one in the back passenger seat, with a window open.

    Staff attending work / attending client meetings (voluntarily)
    Mental health and well-beingWhile working from home, staff may begin to feel isolated. Staff may also start to experience increased stress levels as a result of working as well as caring for young children/ the elderly.

    Resources have been shared on the intranet for staff to utilise if they feel they are not coping with working from home.
    HR will continue to encourage staff to reach out to fellow colleagues, and to use the resources available.
    Several staff have undergone training to become mental heath first aiders, posters are displayed around the offices with their contact details if employees want to reach out to them for support.

    HR and Mental Health First Aid staff
    Discrimination against those with ‘protected characteristics’There is a risk that in making the relevant changes, people who fall under the ‘protected characteristics’ category are left behind and not accounted for

    During the process undertaken to make the office COVID-19 Secure, we considered those who fall under the ‘protected characteristics’ category. We have paid particular attention to those with physical difficulties, expectant mothers and those who are more vulnerable.
    We carried out a separate risk assessment and advised those who need to take the lift, to take the lift one at a time.
    For expectant mothers, there is a slightly increased risk in the third trimester so expectant mothers in their third trimester should stay at home.
    Because attendance at work is voluntary, those who are more vulnerable should stay at home and not voluntarily attend at the office.

    HR and OM have advised of the business’ position and it is up to the relevant staff members to act in accordance with this advice.
    Personal data breachesDue to the fact that we are now collecting sensitive data, there is an increased risk of more severe personal data breaches

    Only those with a business need to the health data have such access to this data. Our retention periods for this particular data are short and this data is only stored for the period of time such storage is necessary.
    ICO guidance is followed closely

      Thank you!


      We support businesses in winning innovation funding through Irish and European grants.

      What Are Grants?

      R&D and european grants represent substantial financial support provided by the Irish government to assist companies in advancing the research and development of groundbreaking products, services, and processes. These grants serve as crucial investments in fostering innovation.

      If you’re actively engaged in research and development endeavors aimed at addressing technical uncertainties, you may qualify for R&D grant funding. Such initiatives hold the potential to unlock opportunities and drive significant technological advancements.

      To secure a successful grant application, it’s imperative to provide a comprehensive description of the newly discovered commercial prospect, your strategic plan for harnessing it, and the anticipated transformative impact on the market. This level of detail underscores the significance of your project and strengthens your eligibility for R&D grant support.

      What Grants are available?

      Irish corporations and institutions have the opportunity to seek innovation grants from Enterprise Ireland and various European grant programs. Below, we outline the primary sources of funding for research and development (R&D) in Europe:

      Horizon Europe

      serves as the successor to the EU’s Horizon 2020 program, with its overarching objective being to shape the future of Europe through research and innovation. Running from 2021 to 2027, this program comes with a substantial budget of €95.5 billion. For more detailed information, please refer to our dedicated Horizon Europe page.

      EUREKA Eurostars

      a European initiative designed to support innovative small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) seeking to engage in collaborative research projects with partners from across Europe and affiliated countries. Enterprise Ireland is committed to assisting Irish SMEs interested in participation. You can find comprehensive information on our EUREKA Eurostars page.

      Our highly experienced in-house teams constantly monitor market development and government funding opportunities to provide the most up-to date cost saving solutions. We offer support around a number of other government schemes including:

      • R&D Tax Credits

        The R&D Tax Credit scheme is strategically crafted to foster innovation and stimulate increased investment in research and development endeavors for businesses operating within Ireland.

      Why Leyton?

      At Leyton, we understand that the development of new products, services, or processes can present significant challenges, encompassing costs, time investments, and inherent risks.. We specialize in securing government R&D grant funding, which not only bolsters your project’s financial resources but also comes without any repayment obligations.

        R&D Tax Credits:
        Reward your innovation and help your business to grow

        Are you looking to claim valuable R&D Tax Relief?

        With more than 25 years of R&D experience and unrivalled tax and technical expertise, Leyton Ireland is ideally positioned to unlock potential value within your business. The benefit received can be reinvested in accelerating current or upcoming projects, used to hire new staff or support your overall growth.

        About R&D Tax Credits

        The R&D Tax Credit scheme is strategically crafted to foster innovation and stimulate increased investment in research and development endeavors for businesses operating within Ireland.

        Currently, the R&D tax credit rate stands at 25% of eligible expenses, effectively reducing a company’s liability for Corporation Tax (CT). The exciting news is that, the R&D Tax Credits will be elevated to a 30% rate for all eligible businesses.

        Surprisingly, numerous enterprises remain unaware of their eligibility for R&D Tax Credits, or they fail to claim the full extent of their entitlement. Notably, in 2018, the Irish government provided substantial support to businesses, offering a total of €475 million in R&D tax credit funding.

        Does my business qualify?

        If your company is embarking on a journey of innovation, enhancement, or the development of processes, products, or services, it is highly probable that you are eligible for R&D tax credits.

        A practical litmus test to establish the eligibility of your undertaken work for R&D credits is to consider whether your project team encountered uncertainties at the project’s inception. In essence, this implies that your team initiated the project without a definitive assurance of achieving a particular outcome.

        If you can provide evidence that your project extends beyond the mere application of existing technologies and involves genuine innovation, you may well meet the criteria for making a successful claim.

        Why Leyton?

        Leyton, a recognized industry leader with over 25 years of experience, is well-versed in the realm of R&D tax credit claims. These claims undergo scrutiny and processing by the Revenue authority, and you have a 12-month window after the close of the accounting period to make an R&D tax credit claim.

        While it’s not legally mandated, it’s in your best interest to consider producing an R&D tax claim report, specifically tailored to your unique circumstances. This report should comprehensively justify the technical advancements and uncertainties encountered during your projects, as well as outline the eligible expenses claimed on a project-by-project basis.

        To optimize the value of your R&D claim, we strongly recommend consulting with an R&D tax specialist. This step ensures that you’re not leaving potential credits unclaimed. Notably, in the past, Leyton has excelled in their role by tripling the value of claims for businesses that had previously attempted to handle their claims internally.

            I have been working with Leyton since the end of 2018 so almost 4 years. It has been a pleasure working with the various teams. They have been proactive and responsive. Most companies struggle to identify where they can make R&D claims and often their own accountants have put them off making a claim believing that it is a waste of time. Leyton helps the various companies identify where they should make a claim and supports them through the claim process. It is time consuming to write the reports for the R&D claims which disincentives companies from making these claims but Leyton does this for you so taking the hassle away.

              Leyton Sailing Team

              Give meaning to performance. A bearer of dreams and adventures, sailing is also one which involve continous innovation and cutting edge technology. By crossing the oceans and seas of the world with our incredible skippers Arthur Le Vaillant (2018-2020) and Sam Goodchild (2019-present), we want to support our clients, employees and partners on their quest for performance and excellence. We also recognise the need for awareness and responsibility and our commitment to this project reflects our desire to come together to conserve our planet and its oceans.

              Leyton Sailing Team Members

              33 years old – Skipper

              Now a specialist in ocean racing, both multihull and monohull, with a crew or solo, Sam Goodchild has gained a great deal of sailing experience in recent years and has built up a solid background. Skipper at Leyton since 2019, he now sails on board the Ocean Fifty, a challenging and powerful trimaran. This English skipper lived with his family on a boat until the age of 10. He moved to France in 2011 to specialise in ocean racing

              42 years old – Team Manager

              Aymeric is the Team Leyton manager. He is an engineer and naval architect, but also an excellent racer. The French sailor made his debut in Mini before moving on to Class40. He then acquired a great deal of experience in the Ocean Fifty and took on the role of crew member for the Pro Sailing Tour and also co-skipper for the Transat Jacques Vabre

              A successful team by their side

              The Leyton team also has a Team Manager, a logistics manager, a trainer, and several other talented team members for crew sailing, without these people nothing would be possible

              Leyton Sailing Team highlights

              Relive the events that have shaped the Leyton Sailing adventure through the commitment and successes of our Team.

              Sam Goodchild wins the Drheam Cup on Leyton!

              Sam Goodchild took line honours in the Drheam Cup in La Trinité sur Mer, south-west Brittany, after 3 days of offshore and a super intense race.

              The Ocean Fifty Leyton is launched in Lorient

              Following a two-month refit with 2 major optimisations, Sam Goodchild and his team launched their Ocean Fifty Leyton in Lorient. Leyton Sailing Team will be defending its title in the second season of the Pro Sailing Tour this spring, before Sam lines up for the start of the singlehanded Route du Rhum in November, the main challenge of the season.

              Leyton Finishes 3rd Into Martinique

              Sam Goodchild and Aymeric Chapellier on Leyton finished the Transat Jacques Vabre into Fort de France, Martinique. The Anglo-French duo staged a significant comeback after being 283 miles behind the leaders at the Cape Verde islands racing a new course for this 15th edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre.

              Leyton, winner of the 2021 Pro Sailing Tour

              The Leyton Sailing Team has completed the Grand Slam of the first season of the Pro Sailing Tour. After winning the Brest, La Rochelle and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria episodes, Sam and his crew won the Final Rush. A great achievement for our British skipper’s first year in the Ocean50.

              2019 European tour

              We arranged a tour of Europe (England, France, Italy, and Spain) with our Figaro Bénéteau 3 for public relations and client events to highlight the group’s commitment to sustainable projects and ocean preservation.

              Route du Rhum 2018

              We were delighted with 4th place for Arthur Le Vaillant’s 1st Route du Rhum – what a performance!

              Leyton Sailing Team project engagements

              A project consistent with the Group’s commitments

              All the actions and activities of the team are consistent with the values of the Leyton Group. That is to say solidarity and excellence, but also the preservation of the environment by using our sailing project as a catalyst for good practices and initiatives focussed on working together to create a more sustainable world.

              A project as a catalyst for innovation

              The Ocean Fifty Leyton acts as an innovation laboratory by carrying on board flexible organic solar panels developed by the start-up Héole. It also encourages the emergence of innovative projects through the Sustainable Organisations Challenge

              Leyton x The Magenta Project

              As part of the group’s commitment to gender equality, the team has teamed up with the Magenta Project, an organisation that promotes the integration of women into the world of competitive sailing, to create a series of training sessions exclusively for women. These courses offer women sailors coastal and offshore sailing with Sam Goodchild and his crew on board the Ocean50, as well as a series of workshops and seminars led by guests from the world of sport

              Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the fight against Covid-19.

              We asked Leyton Group employees to nominate their friends and family who had gone above and beyond during the Covid-19 crisis. All the nominees will now have a symbolic place on board the Multi50, accompany the Team during their outings at sea, as the 200 employee ‘heroes’ have their names inscribed on the boat’s sails

              Carbon footprint and boat offset

              In 2018, for the 1st time in the nautical sector, our energy transition teams wanted to achieve the carbon footprint of our Class40. This was shared with as many people as possible to enable each participant to understand and act in order to reduce the carbon impact of the construction and use of these racing boats. Without this being the purpose of this study, we have chosen to compensate for this impact by planting trees with Reforest’Action.

              Our Sailing Partners

              We are lucky to have a pool of committed financial and technical partners alongside the team.
