DfT issues safer transport guidance for operators

The Department for Transport (DfT) has issued updated guidance to help transport organisations in England understand how to provide safer services as more lockdown measures are lifted.

The guidance outlines measures to assess and address the risks of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The DfT said each organisation will need to translate the principles and examples in the guidance into specific actions.

It said: "Transport providers should remain mindful of their obligations under health and safety, equalities and employment legislation. Transport providers should try to co-ordinate their planning and actions with other providers.

"Operators should consider this guidance alongside the general advice to the public on staying safe and alert."
