The British Plastics Federation (BPF) has updated its guidance on manufacturing best practice in response to Covid-19.
The updated guidance can be found on the BPF’s Health & Safety hub in the third edition of BPF’s Guidance on Good Manufacturing Practice.
It explains how British manufacturers can support and protect their staff during and after the Covid-19 outbreak.
The new edition includes information on the government’s policies on risk assessments and the new Coronavirus National Testing Programme, first aid guidance, and a checklist for safe travel to and from the workplace.
Posters recommending and reminding key parts of best practice – such as social distancing and handwashing – have also been made available for download on the BPF website, along with the BPF’s summary of government guidance for workplaces.
“BPF have compiled the following guidance reflecting good manufacturing practice, which is based on and remains subject to changes from time to time to the UK government’s response to COVID-19 and guidance published by Public Health England,” the BPF explains in its report.
“[This guidance] should be used in a manner appropriate for the nature and scale of each business.”
