COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - Other Key Information

The Health & Safety Executive is carrying out spot checks by calling and visiting workplaces, often unannounced, to make sure that employers are following government guidelines on being COVID-secure.

HSE officers will carry identification from their business and a letter of authorisation from HSE and you may need to talk through what measures have been put in place to reduce the risk of the spread of coronavirus in your particular workplace. This may include the relevant risk assessments.

For more information visit the HSE website here.

NHS Scotland has issued guidance on the coronavirus (COVID-19), which the council is sharing with services and the public. The only information you should rely on is regularly updated at www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus or via NHS Lanarkshire’s dedicated web page at www.nhslanarkshire.scot.nhs.uk/coronavirus. These websites will be updated frequently with the latest guidance. You should not rely on information from any other source including news websites.

If staff are looking for general information, a free helpline has been set up by NHS Scotland on 0800 028 2816.
The helpline is open:
 Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 10.00pm  Saturday and Sunday, 9.00am to 5.00pm
