Safe working in the home moving market, throughout the UK, under COVID-19 conditions
The BAR continues to liaise closely with the respective Governments of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to update the guidelines for moving home as the PM has announced the removal of all restrictions, with effect from 24/02/2022, as part of its new strategy for ‘learning to live with Covid’.
Although all restrictions previously placed upon the home moving market are now removed, it is nonetheless appropriate to remind everyone that Covid still exists and all companies are obliged by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to maintain a Covid-19 Risk Assessment in order to protect their staff and customers from harm. Your chosen BAR Member company will describe to you in detail how they plan to undertake your move, with your cooperation, that will ensure that it remains as COVID secure as is possible.
Throughout the pandemic, the professional Organisations and Associations that make up the home moving market, including the BAR, have been in direct contact with the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, the Home Moves in Scotland Working Group, the Home Moves in Wales Stakeholder Group and the Devolved authorities in Northern Ireland, to design, implement and maintain a joined up approach to safe working practices across the home moving market.
