Coronavirus guidance for the construction sector

What does this involve?

Each area of Scotland has been assigned to a COVID protection level. Find out what you can and cannot do based on the local area that you live, work or travel in.

The guidance is part of a series of documents on working safely in different types of workplaces. It emphasises that:

  • it is essential employers carry out (and regularly review) a COVID-19 risk assessment in collaboration with union health and safety representatives
  • workforces must continue to adhere to existing physical distancing guidelines

It also outlines the difference between essential and non-essential projects.

What does this cost?

This is a free service.

Who is this for?

Anyone who works in the construction sector in Scotland.

How long does this take?

You can read the guidance at your own pace.

Important information

It is essential that employers carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment. These should be developed together with union health and safety representatives. For workplaces, without union representation, union health and safety representatives will be available upon request to support the development of workplace risk assessments.
