Sector-specific guidance on social distancing in the workplace

Public Health England (PHE) have issued sector-specific guidance on social distancing in the workplace.

The view is that construction work can continue if done in accordance with the social distancing guidelines wherever possible.

The importance of continued hand washing, good ventilation and a considered approach to enclosed machinery are all mentioned.

It is worth reading the section titled ‘Use of private vehicles and car pooling’ if you share a journey to and from work.
