Following both Boris Johnson and Nicola Sturgeon’s lockdown announcements on 4 January – and with Wales and Northern Ireland in lockdown since December – the four UK nations remain in the strictest restrictions since March 2020.
Many non-essential businesses have had to close their doors for the third time, but businesses that are considered essential are able to remain open and operational throughout lockdown. For those businesses especially, maintaining COVID compliance in the workplace is vital.
We know that the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and Local Authorities across the country are continuing their inspections and random spot-checks on businesses, focusing on their COVID compliance.
Not meeting these standards and legal requirements in the workplace will result in fines of up to £10,000 and being forced to close your doors.
