COVID-19 GUIDANCE FOR NSW CONSTRUCTION SITES

JOHN HODGKINSON

The NSW Government hopes to lift the ban on construction work in Greater Sydney on 31 July. It is pressing that the construction industry start re-mobilising to be able to work productively from that date.

To keep workers safe, Infrastructure NSW in collaboration with SafeWork NSW and the construction industry has published the COVID-19 Guidance for NSW Construction sites. Safework inspectors will be checking businesses comply with these measures.

Below is short summary:

STAY AWAY
TRAVELLING TO AND ARRIVING ON SITE
KEEPING TRACK OF RECORDS
COVID TESTING
MASKS
MIXING AND SEGREGATING
MEAL AREAS
HOISTS AND LIFTS
COVID MARSHALLS
VACCINATIONS
PROSECUTIONS

If you are issued a penalty infringement notice or prosecuted by Safework NSW, talk to Kreisson’s

experienced lawyer about the alternatives to paying a fine.
