STAY AT HOME
WORK FROM HOME IF YOU POSSIBLY CAN
BUT WHAT ABOUT DEMOLITION?
The majority of workers in demolition cannot work from home, and thus far, the UK government has not enforced the closure of construction sites.
If you have already taken the decision to stop work on your sites, NFDC signposted government guidance yesterday regarding the support for businesses including payment of 80% of wages to staff through furlough and business loans to help with cash flow during these unprecedented times.
If you, like many, are attempting to continue to operate, Build UK and the Construction Leadership Council has published Site Operating Procedures to help ensure that your workforce is implementing the government’s social distancing policies and avoiding the spread of Coronavirus.
NFDC is sharing this information with Members, so you can make informed decisions about your workforce.
