The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy has published guidance on working safely during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic for those who cannot work from home. Eight guidance documents, containing the same information except for a definition of specific types of workers have been produced. The guidance states that wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) beyond what workers usually wear is not beneficial, as coronavirus is a different type of risk to the usual workplace risks and should be managed through social distancing, hygiene and fixed teams or partnering, not through the use of PPE. The guidance is up to date as of 12 May 2020. Angus Dawson, partner at Macfarlanes LLP, comments on the guidance in relation to construction.
