COVID-19 Social Distancing

The construction sector is in a time of massive upheaval and change as a result of COVID-19. Our site has come up with many ways of helping to stop the spread of the virus and to do our part within the community to contain the virus and keep all of our staff, loved ones and the wider community safe.

Having installed the usual control measures (extra welfare facilities, hand wash locations, queue markers) we still found our drying rooms were a pinch point. Our contractors have now erected changing hubs on site, individual changing rooms, each one dedicated to a single person, at least two metres apart or separated by a wall. They look and feel similar to a changing room in a shop and allow appropriate social distancing, free from risk of transfer on surfaces to the staff on site.

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.
