The attached documents set out guidelines and additional precautions for Builders’ Merchant staff in England and Northern Ireland to follow when operating during the COVID 19 outbreak. There are separate regulations/guidance in place in Scotland and Wales.
The safety of staff, suppliers and customers is paramount, but the risks can be managed if the attached safe systems of work are in place and remain effective until further notice.
Government policy is that construction work can continue, that means across the whole supply chain, and that merchants have a key role to play in supporting this.
