AbstractCOVID-19 pandemic has not only claimed numerous lives but also caused severe limitations to daily private as well as business life. This is a written evidence that provides a deeper understanding of what the infrastructure sector has done in order to work around the UK lockdown rules. This evidence provides lessons learnt to policy makers and contributes knowledge on how the UK infrastructure sector have adapted in managing the COVID-19 outbreak. Five semi-structured interviews were conducted within the infrastructure sector and was then analysed to draw inferences. Policies were put in place in the form of: online induction; office staff “engineers that need to go on site”; operating at least 2 meters apart at all times; working from home; virtual support health and wellbeing; and general support for work activities. These policies were put in place to enable employees’ safety during the COVID-19 outbreak while works are carried on in the infrastructure projects.
