Social distancing is one way to help slow the spread of viruses. Generally, social distancing means:

  • Staying at home when people are sick or you have COVID-19

  • Staying 1.5m away from people as much as possible and for outdoor essential gatherings

  • Avoiding touching others such as shaking hands, kissing or hugging.

On a construction site you can practice social distancing in the following ways:

  • Plan ways to enable physical distancing of 1.5m to reduce in-person contact of workers. On a construction site this can be done by:

  • careful scheduling of work to provide distance between workgroups and individuals, e.g. schedule for some internal trades and external trades to work at the same time rather several internal trades only.

  • minimising the numbers of workers in workgroups or teams e.g. only send the necessary numbers of workers to complete a task.

  • When setting up fixed workspaces on site, ensure they are away from other people, high traffic areas and amenities.

  • Staggering of lunch breaks, start times and finish times to minimise any larger gatherings of workers

  • If a large part of the project needs to be undertaken requiring larger numbers of workers i.e. formwork, schedule for only that task to be undertaken on that day or within a specific time frame.

  • Where none of this is possible encourage good hygiene practices as outlined above.

  • Cancel all international and any unnecessary domestic travel plans.

  • Where possible schedule teams of workers to work separately, at different times or on separate parts of the project.

  • Limit any unnecessary visitors to the site, e.g. sales staff, office staff, family members or clients.

  • Limit numbers in hoist to allow for social distancing – taking into account the hoist operator

  • Persons should face away from each other whilst riding in the hoist

  • Travel directly to necessary floors, make more trips and reduce numbers of persons in hoist/ lift at any one time

  • Promote use of stairs for those tasks which don’t require carrying of large equipment/ material, monitor overuse

  • Schedule times for the use of the hoist i.e. for specific tasks, trades or for cleaning times.

  • Avoid large congregations of workers waiting for the hoist at entry points – promoting the principals of social distancing, stagger start times and mealtimes will assist with this
