CLC writes to construction industry
Andy Mitchell, Co-Chair of the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has written an open letter to the construction industry calling on firms to review their COVID-secure working arrangements to make sure they continue to work as safely as possible.
The letter outlines a range of guidance developed by the CLC relating to social distancing, use of PPE and face coverings, the safe operation of site canteens, the safe operation of builders’ merchants, the use of public and private transport to work, and the use of temporary accommodation for workers, amongst other important matters. These are available at this link.
Mitchell said, “As an industry we have demonstrated we can control our operations so that the work we do can be done safely, in collective consistent compliance with the Site Operating Procedures and in accordance with Government direction.
“For the sake of our workforce, the general public around us, and the national economy, we have a huge responsibility to continue to get this right.”
