Revised advice for HICSF members (From HSE)

Dear HICSF Members, I hope everyone is well in these trying times, please see additional information below from Liz Hunter of the HSE.

I wanted to tell members that any enforcement of measures to reduce the spread of COVID 19 will be dealt with by Highland Council officials in specific workplace premises. See links below.

If members have any queries they should use the Highland Council COVID-19 Free Helpline on 0300 303 1362 and check the Council website for updates. For COVID 19 Concerns in HSE enforced premises please contact the Concerns Team as detailed previously.

Hope this helps and stay well everyone.

Liz Hunter
