As announced by the First Minister, from the 5th of April 2021, lockdown restrictions on the retail sections are to be eased.
Businesses preparing to re-open should ensure that a ‘suitable and sufficient’ risk assessment has been undertaken to identify control measures to be implemented within your business to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.
