Commenting on the latest guidance released from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, Stephen Phipson, Make UK Chief Executive, said:
"The Secretary of State has driven this highly important step forward in the vital need to build confidence among the workforce so that manufacturing can begin to operate fully. However it's clear that PPE is going to be a key issue and, despite the guidance being advisory and not mandatory, it's absolutely essential that manufacturers of all sizes go the extra mile to provide their employees with every piece of equipment which could protect them and ensure they can work safely.
"Many manufacturers are already operating at the top end of safe working and have adapted working environments in line with today's important Government guidance".
