As firms begin to restart their operations, the FTA and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) have launched a guide with advice on doing it safely, quickly and effectively.

The Good Practice Guide for Covid-19 shares practice advice and examples from member organisations and is designed to be used in conjunction with the official UK government guidance on safer workplaces.

It covers key considerations including risk assessments; social distancing in the workplace; cleaning of the workplace and PPE and face coverings.

David Wells, FTA chief executive, said: “The combined membership of our two organisations have a wealth of knowledge and insight spanning several different sectors; their experiences will help other businesses understand how best to implement safe practices during this unprecedented time and get their operations up and running as soon and as safely as possible.”
