Business Secretary Letter

The Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy – Alok Sharma,, has written an open letter which is attached to everyone working in the UK construction sector, confirming that construction and its supply chain is delivering for the nation and should continue to operate.

This AMM also highlights the Duty Holders Responsibilities under CDM and HASAWA to provide a safe place  and systems of work, which need to be controlled and managed by those in control of the site and only when the management of these systems are in place should BCSA members consider altering their RAMS to include the new controls if they are appropriate to enable the Construction Leadership Council  Site Operating procedures for COVID-19 Public Health England Guidance to be met. The Safe Site Handover Certificate for COVID-19 can help to verify that the new systems are appropriate.
