Toolkit to help businesses reopen launches

Posted on: 2 June 2020

A toolkit to help businesses in Devon, Somerset and Torbay to reopen safely has been launched.

Better Business For All (BBFA) is a partnership of Devon and Somerset’s local authorities, business groups, regulators and trading standards services, and they have created a resource providing guidance and advice to businesses.

It follows the Government’s announcement that from 15 June ‘non-essential’ businesses can reopen.

The toolkit provides information and links to help businesses understand what their regulatory and legal responsibilities are and what they have to do to restart their business safely.

It provides useful documents including a risk assessment template, action plan, business checklists and safety guides.

It will answer questions ranging from ‘Can I open?’ right through to how to reopen safely, travel advice for employees and visitors, and guidance on personal protective equipment and hygiene.
