Staying Safe at Work

Staying Safe at Work

The Welsh Government has published the coronavirus control plan for Wales setting out how we can all work together to manage the risks of coronavirus. It notes that the coronavirus regulations include obligations on people responsible for premises open to the public or where work takes place. 

At the current “alert level 0” there is no legal requirement for any premises to remain closed. However there is still a legal requirement for businesses, employers and event organisers to:

  1. Adults and children over 11 must continue to wear face-coverings  in health and social care settings. Although no longer a legal requirement in other settings, the use of face coverings is still strongly advised in crowded or enclosed indoor premises, unless people previously had a medical exemption.
