New guidance launched to help get more people safely back to work
The Government has published new guidance for employers to help them get their businesses back up and running and their workplaces operating safely.
The new COVID-19 secure’ guidelines are available to UK employers to help them make workplaces as safe as possible and give people confidence to go back to work during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The guidelines have been developed in consultation with around 250 businesses, unions and industry leaders as well as with devolved administrations.
The new guidance covers eight workplace settings which are allowed to be open, from outdoor environments and construction sites to factories and takeaways, and sets out practical steps for businesses focused on five key points, which should be implemented as soon as it is practical.
A summary of the new guidance, as well as links to other useful websites, can be found on the Warwickshire County Council website here
