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.”
