Overview

This guidance is for organisations not covered by sectoral guidance. We have produced sector guidance to support a safe economic restart and recovery.

All of our sector guidance aims to support Scotlands progress through the phases of our Route Map.

In this ongoing pandemic, it is vital that all businesses act responsibly and align fully with published guidance. Workplace guidance is underpinned by:

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

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 Scotlands economic recovery.

As each workplace is different, individual organisations should work with trade unions or workforce representatives to determine how best to apply this guidance.

Guidance will be reviewed on a regular basis in line with our priority to contain the spread of the virus, save lives and safeguard the NHS.

If you can suggest ways we can improve the guidance please email DLECONPSWT@gov.scot.
