As an employer, you must protect people from harm. This includes taking reasonable steps to protect your workers and others from coronavirus (COVID-19).
Coronavirus can transfer from people to surfaces. It can be passed on to others who touch the same surfaces.
Keeping your workplace clean and frequent handwashing reduces the potential for coronavirus to spread and is a critical part of making and keeping your business working safely.
These webpages will show how you can organise your work and workplace, so hygiene is maintained, surfaces are clean and people are provided with the right facilities to control the risk from coronavirus (COVID-19).
There is separate advice on:
- use, manufacture and supply of hand sanitiser products and surface disinfectants
- disinfecting premises using fog, mist and vapour
We review and update this page regularly to reflect any changes in guidance.
