COVID-19 & Social Distancing: Practical Guidance for Electrical Wholesale Branches

With the help of a panel of experts from EDA member wholesalers, this downloadable guide provides information for electrical wholesalers in the operation of a typical branch during COVID-19 and social distancing.

This guidance is based on the latest advice from government, and from the Construction Leadership Council’s (CLC) Site Operating Procedures (SOP), which you can also download from this website.

This guidance is available to download both as a full document, and as individual pages so you can get the right information to the right member of your team with ease. You’ll find links to the individual pages below.

Please note that this guidance does not replace your company’s existing health and safety guidance or policy. The practical guidance and advice it offers is specifically for use during the COVID-19 pandemic.
