The new New ‘COVID-19 secure’ guidelines complement the existing Construction Leadership safe site operating procedures.
Detailed government advice for construction sites can be found here.
Business Secretary Alok Sharma said: “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.”
An extra £14m has also been made available to the Health and Safety Executive to help police the new guidelines.
