Creating Covid-19 secure workplaces

July 29, 2020   //   No Comments

Information from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE)

HSE has produced guidance on social distancing in the workplace, with details on common areas, workstations, movement around buildings and more.  Find out more below or visit their social distancing webpage.

Social distancing means keeping people apart to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. Where possible you should keep people 2m apart. If this is not viable, keeping 1m apart with risk mitigation is acceptable.  You must ensure that workers and other people visiting your workplace understand and comply with the measures you put in place. 

Social distancing should form part of your business’s risk assessment and is one of the steps needed to make your workplace COVID-secure

Although HSE regulates in England, Scotland and Wales, the rules on social distancing may be different in devolved nations. You should check the public health guidance for the country you are in:
