Guidance to help employers, employees and the self-employed understand how to work safely during the coronavirus pandemic.
The government, in consultation with industry, has produced guidance to help ensure workplaces are as safe as possible.
You should work from home unless it is impossible for you to do so.
There are 8 guides covering a range of different types of work. 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 the guides as you think through what you need to do to keep people safe.
Further guidance is available on GOV.UK - Working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19)
If your business has a water system please read the guidance provided on our Legionnaires - re-opening your business safely web page.
