The Scaffolding Association and our members are deeply saddened by the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. She was a constant in our lives who showed unwavering dedication during her 70-year reign. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family during this difficult time.

Businesses across the UK will continue to operate normally but there are some considerations you may wish to make, including:

  • providing an opportunity for your staff to offer their condolences, either by providing your own book of condolence or by directing them to the online book of condolence at the Royal website;

  • signposting staff on how to donate to one of The Queen’s patronages, with information available on the Royal website;
  • identifying whether your business location is likely to be impacted by arrangements made by Local Authorities, or events planned in central London, and planning your response;
  • considering any changes you might wish to make to your website and social media activities; and
  • where you have flags, lowering them to half-mast.

The best source of information is Your Local Authority will also be updating their own websites on local arrangements, including any events they may organise which might impact on the locality of your business or local travel.
