Review and future development
This guidance extends until further notice. It sets out both our current advice and guidance for the manufacturing sector in helping to handle COVID-19, and it reflects the latest iteration of our route-map towards operating safely within overarching public health considerations.
We will continue to develop our plans to address the wider issues needed to support manufacturers to operate safely. The Coronavirus (COVID-19): framework for decision making – Scotland’s route map through and out of the crisis provides an indication of the order in which we will continue to carefully and gradually lift current restrictions. All of this will be evidence led.
Easing restrictions will not mean returning to how things were before the virus. Physical distancing, hand hygiene, and other critical behaviours will be essential in each area to ensure public and workforce confidence.
This guidance has been review on 8 September and will continue to be reviewed as required in consultation with the sector’s employers and unions. Please ensure you use the latest version.
It is for individual businesses in conjunction with trade union or workforce representatives to decide how best to successfully adopt and adapt guidance for their individual circumstances.
