CLC face covering guidance updated

The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has published a statement on the use of face coverings on construction sites.

The CLC say:

The use of face coverings in response to coronavirus is mandatory in areas of retail open to the public and on public transport, in taxis and private hire vehicles.

Face coverings should also be worn in other crowded and enclosed indoor places where people come into contact with others they don’t normally meet. As part of their risk assessment, employers should consider whether to ask workers to wear a face covering. Workers may also choose to wear a face covering where it is not legally required and should be supported to do so.

The use of face coverings and/or PPE is not required in response to coronavirus whilst carrying out construction activities.
