Site Attitude

With Jarvis sites reopening in line with our safety measures that exceed Public Health England guidance and the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures there is a very focused emphasis on compliance.

It is essential that we do not allow complacency to creep in across our projects, particularly until any social distancing or other safety measures are relaxed.

Attitude must be reinforced with all site personnel on accessing site, through verbal instruction and updated Notice Boards.

Site teams are to undertake regular site tours and visual inspections to ensure that protocols are being maintained.

Personnel should have regularly, staggered breaks for additional handwashing. Smoking breaks must be limited to individuals.

Jarvis SHEQ team will undertake additional COVID-19 specific site inspections and managers are required to deliver regular Tool Box Talks (at distance) based on CLC Site Operating Procedures.

Site teams must use the Yellow/Red/Gold card system to police the revised site protocols.

Operatives failing to comply must be asked to leave site and good practice rewarded through the Gold card system.

Public perception towards construction staff is very mixed and all personnel must be reminded that they are still representing our business whilst travelling to/from site. Jarvis Community Notice Boards are to display Public Notices as issued by the company and site teams may email copies of CLC SOP’s to members of the public that question whether construction activity is allowable.

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.
