As we continue to make our way through the COVID-19 eased restrictions, we urge you all to remain patient, vigilant and compliant with all COVID-19 safety protocols. We understand that WorkSafe is conducting regular checks, with more than 300 inspections taking place in May

For our industry to stay open, it is imperative that everyone continues to demonstrate that we can operate in a COVIDSafe manner.

Please ensure that you are adhering to Revision 13 of the Victorian Building & Construction Industry Guidelines.

There are many things about COVID-19 that are beyond our control, but following the rules is not.

We strongly recommend that members implement the Government’s free QR code system and a no scan, no entry policy on site. 

Please ensure you are maintaining a COVIDSafe workplace. Please read and download the COVID-19 industry best practice on site poster.
