The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is urging all companies and workers in the sector to make sure they not only stay safe, but also work safe during the latest lockdown.
John Agnew, GGF Managing Director, said: “The latest lockdown restrictions will dramatically affect many sectors, and it is welcomed that the UK and Irish Governments are trying to keep pillars of the economy going and that includes manufacturing, construction and home improvement.
“Though this is positive for our sector, it is crucial that all companies and their employees adhere to the safe guidance available and take every practical and reasonable step to ensure that everyone stays safe in the workplace.”
In May, the GGF issued Safe Guides for installers and consumers as well as publishing the Site Operating Procedures for construction sites as well as manufacturing safe guidance.
As the second wave rises, this guidance is still available for free download to all companies in the industry.
The GGF has published a breakdown of the latest guidance by country on its website, from where the Federation’s Safe guidance documents for the Glass, Glazing and Fenestration sectors can downloaded too.
