As the country moves slowly back to a “new normal”, it is clear that we are still operating in unprecedented times where we still need to continue to be agile in our approach to onstreet activities, to carry on working together and also keep both the workforce and the public safe.
The Government’s advice in England is constantly under review and the current version can be found here www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/construction-and-other-outdoor-work.
However, as restrictions are slowly being lifted, there are regrettably some localised set-backs and lockdowns, or where restrictions may be re-imposed. In these cases, localised measures may be put in place by Local Authorities and all StreetWorks practitioners must therefore refer to these and comply with them accordingly. Measures may differ between different cases, so it is also important to stay up to date with what these may be and the area to which they apply.
