A new 31-page PDF from the government for safe siteworking and £14million to the Health & Safety Executive to make sure you stick to the guidelines.

The Government has published supplementary guidance for working safely onsite.

Business Secretary Alok Sharma says: “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.”

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) has been given an extra £14million to police the new guidelines and ensure they are being followed.
