AXA are producing a series of guides to help businesses returning to work. In the information published, they state “with signs that we’re now past the peak of Coronavirus cases in the UK, there are indications that the current lockdown will gradually be relaxed.”

 

AXA have produced back to business guidance for multiple sectors including construction sites, construction subcontractors, sprinkler installations and other areas currently relevant. AXA comment that they will “keep adding to these as new sectors of the economy start to open up again”.

 

It is of importance to note, as stated in the guidance documents available, that the guidance does not override any existing policy conditions. “All applicable health & safety legislation and regulations remain fully in force, including [the] Fire Safety Regulatory Reform Order.”
