Point of Work Risk Assessment and Daily Brief (COVID-19)

After the issue of the CLC guidance on the 23rd March 2020, McDermott’s decided to introduce a daily brief to be completed on all sites each morning.

This is to ensure that operatives that are continuing to work during the pandemic are reminded daily of the current social distancing and good hygiene practice guidance issued by the government.

This has been designed with the aim of protecting our workforce, their colleagues, families and the rest of the population and to minimise the spread of infection.

The daily brief also contains information on the current control measures to be adopted with regards to travel to site, what to do if someone falls ill on site, site access points/site offices, toilet facilities, canteens/eating arrangements, site briefings and vehicles/plant.

The briefing also clearly defines that if a task/activity cannot be completed whilst adhering to all of the control measures in the document (especially with regard to maintaining the 2-metre distance between operatives) it must not continue.

The control measures set out in the daily brief are being monitored frequently and individually by site management.

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.
