Scotlands Restart Plan

The First Minister announced today that restrictions over some of our personal and work activities will begin to ease from tomorrow and into next week. One of the specific industry’s she mentioned in beginning to return to work was the construction industry.

In her latest announcement she confirmed that the construction sector will be allowed to implement the first two phases (As below, phases 0 and 1) of its restart plan with a decision to move to ‘phase 2’ of the plan after consulting with government to ensure it is safe to do so in line with public health advice.
