Priority actions are outlined at the top of each guide.
The guides can be used alongside the governments Covid Risk Assessment, which helps to make sure businesses have covered what is necessary to keep workers and others safe. Once a risk assessment is completed businesses must also monitor them to make sure that the control measures put in place are working as expected.
