The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has published guidance to help employers keep their workplaces operating safely during this time.
The latest guidance covers eight workplace settings:
- construction and other outdoor work
- factories, plants and warehouses
- other people's homes
- labs and research facilities
- offices and contact centres
- restaurants offering takeaway or delivery
- shops and branches
Many businesses operate more than one type of workplace, such as an office, factory and fleet of vehicles. You may need to use more than one of these guides as you think through what you should do to keep people safe.
