Site Operating Procedures updated
A new version of the Site Operating Procedures (SOP) has just been published.
The third and latest version of the SOP takes in the recent guidelines provided by Public Health England in particular, which covered construction and transport issues.
Notably, PHE guidance for construction states “Where it is not possible to follow the social distancing guidelines in full in relation to a particular activity, you should consider whether that activity needs to continue for the site to continue to operate, and, if so, take all the mitigating actions possible to reduce the risk of transmission.”
PHE’s sector guidance can be found at the following links:
