We thank the many members who have already implemented changes on their sites to reduce the spread of COVID-19. To further support you, we have produced further guidelines for hygiene and safety on your sites. These guidelines should be implemented immediately and shared with colleagues and all members of your workforce. If you would like further assistance with what this means for your business, our team is on hand to help. Please call (03) 9411 4555.
We have received some reports of work sites where people are not adhering to the social distancing guidelines, which poses an unnecessary threat to the health of community. This is not acceptable.
All employers and employees must understand the importance of health and safety precautions and embrace them now. Failure to do so risks the health of our families, our community, our colleagues and increases the likelihood of the immediate shutdown of building and construction projects. As government authorities continue to introduce new measures to contain COVID-19, these guidelines will be updated and modified.
