Deliveries, distribution and site visitors
Information about protecting your workforce and site visitors.
As a minimum we expect organisations:
- to provide early clarity to their suppliers about honouring of orders in the system, linked to new working capacity and consumer demand/contracts
- to treat all site visitors including contractors, suppliers and those making deliveries, as if they were employees, ensuring they are offered the same protections and are expected to follow the same rules
Other site visitors
In addition to the visiting public, organisations may have a number of other visitors on site. This presents increased risk of virus transmission if people do not adhere to the same interpretation of rules. To address this risk organisations should consider limiting site access to those who need to be there for safe operation, ensuring safe working practices and implementing a permit to work system for contractors and external visitors who still need to access the site. This would set out requirements for how everyone behaves on a site, including entering and leaving the site, clarifying responsibilities for all around maintaining good hygiene and physical distancing.
