Construction will continue to operate during a four-week coronavirus lockdown in England, announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday (31 October).
The announcement means that construction will stay open
across all four home nations.
Build UK advised sites to review their social distancing measures and remind the workforce of the importance of complying with social distancing measures and to comply with the Site Operating Procedures – Version 6.
Tradespeople can also continue to work in people’s homes as
long as both the worker and household members have no symptoms of coronavirus.
And hotels can remain open to provide accommodation for
workers, with Build UK asking firms to advise them if they have any difficulty finding
accommodation for workers working away from home.
Build UK has produced an authorisation letter template for employers in the event of
workers being stopped on journeys to and from sites anywhere in the UK.
