Designated Facemask and Coverings Disposal Point

The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in many changes to how project’s carry out their works on a day to day basis and has tasked the industry with creating new safer means to carry out their works by reducing the transmission of this virus.

With the increased use of facemasks and coverings within the construction industry. The mandatory nature of these on many projects has lead to the disposal of a potentially hazardous material.

The project team have therefore established designated disposal bins for face coverings which allows operatives to dispose of their masks/coverings in easily identifiable wheelie bins. The plastic liner is removed daily and left in a decontamination area prior to disposal which mitigates the risk to all persons involved.

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.
