Authorisation letter for site workers
ECA has produced a template letter that may be adapted to help companies and operatives to show the police or other authorities that they are engaged in business that is currently allowed under government rules, subject to meeting current guidelines.
At present, the Government position is that construction (including FM/maintenance) can continue, subject to meeting essential conditions. The Construction Leadership Council has identified these essential conditions for work to continue as being as follows:
- it can be carried out under the guidance issued by Public Health England;
- it can be undertaken without any compromising on safety and health;
- it’s done in accordance with the new Site Operating Procedure (SOP); and
- workers can travel safely and responsibly to sites.
