The use of face coverings has recently become mandatory in more public places and construction employers have continued to ask the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) for guidance to help provide a consistent approach across the industry.
The CLC has considered the issue and has published:
This proposing that employers make available face coverings as a minimum where workers are not required to wear RPE for their specific task and their workplace meets all of the following criteria:
- An enclosed space.
- Where social distancing isn’t always possible.
- Where they come into contact with others they do not normally meet.
A copy of the CLC information is attached.
