Ban the Beard

A construction contractor has told staff to report to work clean shaven. Why has it brought in this rule and might you have to consider doing the same?

The rule is designed to ensure that staff wearing dust masks makes a seal and provide protection.
Staff wearing masks should have a fit-test.
If it’s not effective, you can ask them to shave or provide an alternative mask.
