UK | COVID-19 | The Health and Safety Executive provides guidance on adapting to COVID-19 in the workplace

The HSE published different guidances in the past week on adapting workplace safety during the Covid-19 outbreak. It published information on First Aid requirements with limited staff on site and DSE for temporary work from home. Importantly it also released information on social distancing in the workplace. On First Aid coverage, the HSE advises to assess the number of people present on site and the risk level of the activity. If necessary, higher risk could be stopped. Another solution may be to share first aid cover with another buisness.
