Our friends at Peninsula have provided us with a Covid-19 toolkit which offers advice for employees, employers and the self-employed. The following information is available for download at http://www.hrsupport.peninsulapartner.com:
- MANAGING CORONAVIRUS ISSUES AT WORK (AN HR PERSPECTIVE)
- CHECKLIST FOR MANAGING CORONAVIRUS IN THE WORKPLACE
- LAY-OFF AND SHORT-TIME WORKING (TEMPORARY REDUNDANCY)
- POLICY ON DEALING WITH CORONAVIRUS IN THE WORKPLACE [TEMPLATE]
The situation is changing daily, BCTA will endeavour to keep you up to date as often as we can.
We have not received any construction specific advice. The latest information is that construction sites remain open, though the consensus amongst my contacts (subjective) is that this is likely to change in the near future, depending on the size and readiness of the site. Sites which are nearly complete and can allow people to work at a safe distance from each other will continue until told otherwise. Sites that afford the luxury of space will not be able to continue. The BCTA, ATTMA & SITMA Directors have all been in touch to try to plan ahead.
Please do not hesitate to make contact with us if you have any issues or queries and we will do our best to support you.
