The Scottish Government, Police Scotland, Health and Safety Executive and local authorities have produced a joint statement on safe workplaces.

The statement’s message is that by employers, workers, unions and regulatory bodies working together can create safe workplaces for all.

Environmental Health teams in Local Authorities with their expertise in health and safety and public health are best placed to offer advise to businesses on safe working practices and also take action where premises that are required to be closed are not, or where those that can remain open are failing to meet requirements for safe physical distancing.
