Coronavirus Vaccinations Information

On this project, the contractor has been collating data from their workforce to see how many operatives are vaccinated against coronavirus. From their research they calculated that they currently have 40% of workers who’ve had one dose or more, however the national average is a lot higher.

They decided to meet with the Directors of their current contractors and together decided to spread more awareness regarding the coronavirus vaccine and encourage a higher uptake of the vaccine.

Their reason for wanting to encourage the workforce to take the vaccine was that scientific research has shown that anyone who gets coronavirus can become seriously ill or have long-term effects such as (long COVID).

They hosted a toolbox talk to information the workforce that research has shown the vaccines help:

  • Reduce your risk of getting seriously ill or dying from coronavirus
  • Reduce your risk of catching or spreading coronavirus
  • Protect against coronavirus variants
  • Protect you, your family and fellow workers.

They provided information of the nearest, free vaccination centre to site and how to book near to where they live, on-line via the NHS Website.

They have also been conducting weekly testing on site for all of the workforce.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
