Construction

Useful Information

  • Remember to follow a set process for risk assessing the transmission of COVID-19 in the workplace and to follow the Scottish Government guide for returning to work:

Scottish Government Sector Guidance for Construction

  • Healthy Working Lives has information on carrying out risk assessments and examples of general workplace controls at:

  • COVID Secure Check collects COVID-19 risk assessments published by employers and monitors good and bad practices.  Examples can be seen at (there may not be an example from your sector):

COVID Secure Check


Sector specific information and guidance can be found at:


Common issues and topics for the sector include:

  • Ensure you follow Scottish Government guidance for the appropriate phase (currently phase 4 as from 15th July 2020) as they progress through the 6 phases.
  • Physical / social distancing should be maintained on site as far as possible, even if this means fewer workers are allowed on site.
  • You should carry out a risk assessment and read the sector guidance to help determine if appropriate, additional control measures are needed e.g. erecting screens/barriers where physical distancing is not possible.  Health and Safety Executive visits may be likely as they retarget proactive visits on high-risk industries.  Regulating Health and Safety during COVID-19
  • Provide additional hand-washing facilities, enhanced cleaning procedures for common touch surfaces / points, and restrict worker contact by staggering start, finish and break times and limiting the number allowed to access welfare facilities at one time.
