Safe working in the home moving market, throughout the UK, under COVID-19 conditions

Latest Covid-19 Restrictions Updated 29/11/2021

The BAR continues to liaise closely with the respective Governments of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to update the guidelines for moving home in accordance with the relaxation of restrictions as the UK moves out of lockdown.

Despite the emergence of the new Omicron variant, there are currently no restrictions being placed upon the home moving market although we will of course keep you updated should anything change. It is appropriate to remind everyone that the risks still exist and all companies are obliged by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to maintain a Covid-19 Risk Assessment in order to protect people 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 is 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
