2m is still the right thing to do

Update following the government guidance for further easing on 4 July

Just because the phrase “further easing of social distancing to 1m+” has been introduced doesn’t mean the 2m social distancing rule has been abandoned.  2m distancing is still required in businesses except where it is not viable, then it can be 1m+ and the plus mean further risk mitigation. 

Mitigation arrangements could include increased handwashing, surface and equipment cleaning, screens to separate specific activity/working areas, consistent pairing, reduction in the time spent in proximity, avoidance of the face-to-face in preference to side-by-side, staggering of timed activities (shifts, appointments, break times etc), reducing congestion and increased ventilation.

If you are intending to amend your arrangements don’t forget to update your COVID Secure Risk Assessment. 

If you need a written risk assessment, an update to you current arrangements or further advice on any aspects of health and safety etc, SoPro Safety is ready and available to assist you.
