CLC site safety update
In light of the relaxation of social distancing measures from 4 July, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) is reviewing its Site Operating Procedures (SOP) to facilitate safe working on site. The revised guidance for businesses is expected to be released in the next few days.
The current and latest version of the SOP states that when social distancing at 2 metres cannot be applied, time spent doing such tasks should be minimised, and workers should perform tasks side-by-side where possible.
ECA and BESA have also issued supportive guidance which can be found at www.eca.co.uk/business-recovery
The current SOP guidance (as of time of writing) can be found here.
