Planning a return to work for UK manufacturers
Issues for UK fashion and textile manufacturers to consider
UKFT has worked with members, our dedicated employment advisor and external stakeholders to produce a checklist of issues for UK fashion and textile manufacturers to consider when planning a return to work.
There is also a template Covid-19 Working Practices Guide, which will help manufacturers implement government advice.
The recommendations outline measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of employees, as well as the wider community during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In addition to these measures, employers should have regular two-way communication with staff to identify and address opportunities for improvement.
This document will be updated as the situation progresses and in response to developing government guidance. If you have any specific input, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has also produced guides for social distancing in retail and warehouses, which are attached below.
- BRC Warehouse and Distribution Implementation Practices V2
- BRC-USDAW Implementation Practices for non-food retail stores
UKFT is in constant dialogue with the government and is outlining the latest support available for businesses on our website. We will update the details as and when the situation changes.
