The Scottish Government is keen to build confidence and create the right environment for supporting safer work as we continue to live with COVID-19.

This guidance is based on the principles set out in COVID-19: A Framework for Decision-Making and our long-established commitment to fair work, which was set in the context of the current crisis in a joint statement with the STUC (which we have taken into account when developing this guidance).

The remainder of this guidance sets out our minimum expectations across key areas organisations will need to consider as part of their planning for a restart and ongoing production while minimising the transmission of the virus:
