Royal Decree 286/2022, of 19 April has been published, amending the conditions for the compulsory use of face masks during the health crisis caused by COVID-19
In the work environment, in general and with the exception of activities expressly stated in the standard, the use of masks will not be mandatory.
However, occupational risk prevention officers, following a corresponding risk assessment, may determine the appropriate preventive measures to be implemented in the workplace or in certain spaces of a work centre, including the possible use of masks, if this results from the aforementioned assessment.
Any amendments to this Royal Decree will not affect the "Prevention and hygiene measures" established in article 7 of Act 2/2021, of 29 March, on Urgent prevention, containment and coordination measures to address the health crisis caused by COVID-19, which include:
a) The implementation of ventilation, cleaning and disinfection measures appropriate to the characteristics and intensity of use of work centres, in accordance with the protocols established in each case.
b) The provision of soap and water for workers, and anti-viral and anti-bacterial hand sanitiser and gel, authorised and registered by the Ministry of Health for hand cleaning.
c) The adaptation of working conditions, including the organisation of work positions and the scheduling of shifts, and the use of common spaces, in such a way as to guarantee a minimum interpersonal safety distance of 1.5 metres between workers. Where this is not possible, workers must be provided with protective equipment appropriate to the risk level.
d) The adoption of measures to avoid crowding of workers, customers and users, in work centres during peak times.
e) The adoption of measures for the gradual return to work and the promotion of remote work when possible.
