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 Manufacturing

  • 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:

COVID Secure Check

Such as: 

Bentley Motors Limited

Sector specific information and guidance can be found at:


Common topics in the Manufacturing Sector:

  • You should carry out a risk assessment and read the sector guidance. This will help determine if additional personal protective equipment is required for example - face/visor mask/face covering, gloves and plastic apron.
  • Make sure that there is a robust cleaning programme in place. All common contact surfaces should be regularly cleaned (access control and delivery areas, scanners, tools, workstations, doors, toilet facilities, changing rooms, canteens and so on).
  • You should try and minimise the need for sharing tools, vehicles or any equipment. If this is required they should be cleaned before and after each use and only shared among the same group of colleagues.
  • Introduce physical distancing within your workplace by, for example changing the layout, using floor markings or displaying signage to ensure staff can keep a safe distance around the workplace and workstations. 
  • Stagger entry and exit times, break times or split the workforce into specific teams to reduce the risk of transmission.
