We Are Here To Support You.png

The Government continues to offer updated advice for people who are returning to the workplace following a period of lockdown.

In order to reduce workplace risk, the current advice stipulates that you must: 

  1. Increase the frequency of handwashing
  2. Retain social distancing – keep 2m apart
  3. Self-isolate at home if you show symptoms of coronavirus

Sector-specific guidance which covers construction, other outdoor work, warehouses, labs, research facilities, offices and contact centres can be found here


The remaining guidance addresses working in other people's homes, restaurants offering takeaway or delivery, shops and similar environments and people who work in or from vehicles, including couriers and lorry drivers.
