Working safely to protect employees and the economy

Last week, the multi-agency Cumbria Strategic Co-ordination Group of the Local Resilience Forum, which is managing the county’s response to COVID-19, issued guidance to businesses on safe working, to ensure that both the county’s workforce and economy are protected during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The guidance reminded the public that not all businesses need to close under current guidance – indeed, it is important for business to carry on – providing that they operate safely in line with Public Health England guidelines. Full details of the Cumbria Strategic Co-ordination Group’s safe working guidance can be found at:

The business stories are being shared at:
