New guidance on social distancing in the workplace
The government has published sector-specific guidance for employers in England on social distancing in the workplace during coronavirus (COVID-19). The guidance covers how social distancing and other measures might be implemented by employers to help protect their workforces and customers from coronavirus while still continuing to trade.
The sectors considered by the guidance are shops running a pick-up or delivery service, tradespeople who work in people’s homes, construction, manufacturing and processing, retail, logistics businesses, outdoor businesses, visiting farms for animal health and welfare, fishing or other short-term offshore work, cargo-shipping or other long-term offshore work, transport businesses and waste management businesses.
Advice for business in the other nations of the UK is provided by the Scottish and Welsh governments and by the Northern Ireland Executive.
