Overview

The Scottish Government has produced sector guidance to support a safe economic restart and ensure workplaces are safe. All of our sector guidance aims to support Scotland’s progress through the phases of our Route Map.

This guidance sets out our expectations for organisations that do not fall within the sectors that guidance is currently available for.

If available, sector guidance must be consulted in the first instance.

Organisations need to consider mitigations to ensure workplaces are safe and the transmission of the virus is minimised.

This guidance has been developed in collaboration with industry, trade unions, regulators, local authorities and others, including equality organisations. Protecting the health of workers is at the heart our approach. Partnership working is fundamental to establishing a shared confidence around the safety of returning to workplaces, protecting public health and supporting Scotland’s economic recovery.

If you can suggest ways we can improve the guidance please email contact-econ@gov.scot.
