Specific sector guidance on working safely during the pandemic

Various sets of sector specific guidance (covering: 1. construction and other outdoor work; 2. Factories, plants and warehouses; 3. labs and research facilities; 4. offices and contact centres and similar indoor environments;  5. working in other people’s homes; 6. restaurants offering take away or delivery; 7. shops and similar environments; and 9. work in or from vehicles (including couriers and drivers)), set out a framework of measures that should be considered and implemented to achieve safe working.  Employers should be looking at these and planning for how they will look after staff in any transition back to work. 

The guidance can be found at:


The current overarching guidance is that people should continue to work from home wherever possible, but where this is not possible workers should travel to work if their workplace is open.
