Taylor Wimpey plans to reopen sites

Taylor Wimpey has set a timetable for reopening sites in England & Wales on a phased roll out. Starting on 4 May, management teams are expected to get ready for the new operating protocols to meet social distancing requirements. Sub-contractors can return to work on site from 11 May and will be required to sign up to Taylor Wimpey’s COVID-19 Code of Conduct in order to do so. Pete Redfern, chief executive said: 

“…We will be regularly monitoring and enforcing these behaviours on our sites and will require all staff, subcontractors and suppliers to sign up to this Code of Conduct in advance of starting on site.”…“This has been based on the CLC guidance document which we have positively adapted and enhanced for a house building setting.”…“We welcome the news that, going forward, the Health and Safety Executive will be monitoring safe processes in response to COVID-19 on site.”.
