Government releases ‘Covid-19 secure’ guidelines for construction



The Government has published its guidance for construction companies to operate sites safely as work resumes across the country.

The new New ‘COVID-19 secure’ guidelines complement the existing Construction Leadership safe site operating procedures.

Detailed government advice for construction sites can be found here.

Alok Sharma, Business secretary, commented:

“This guidance provides a framework to get the UK back to work in a way that is safe for everyone.

These are practical steps to enable employers to identify risks that Covid-19 creates and to take pragmatic measures to mitigate them.

And as we are able to reopen new sectors of the economy, we will continue our collaborative approach working with a wide range of stakeholders, to provide guidance for additional workplaces.”
