In the days and weeks to come more and more businesses will be returning to work and will be assessing how their business can be re-opened safely. There is a great deal of information available to businesses to assist with this process. The links below may help business owners whilst making their assessments.

In addition to detailed guidance all businesses should consider the 5 steps to working safely. More details on this can be found at the GOV.UK Working Safely page External Hyperlink.
