GN2 workplace guidance updated
17 August 2020
The ECA/BESA-produced guidance note (GN2) on COVID-19 and engineering services has been updated to reflect recent CLC guidance on face coverings in the workplace.
The guide, available here, outlines measures that enable essential work to be carried out closer than government social distancing guidelines.
CLC guidance on face coverings says that employers should make face coverings available - as a minimum - when workers don’t need to wear respiratory protection (RPE) for a specific task and the work meets all three criteria below:
• it is in an enclosed space;
• social distancing isn’t always possible; and
• workers come into contact with others who they do not normally meet.
