Making space on site guides updated as restrictions ease

HIA’s making space on site guides for new housing sites, for renovation and repair projects and for kitchen & bathroom projects have all been updated to remove the ‘6 person on site’ rule. This reflects the easing of state government restrictions for non-essential public gatherings in most states and territories. The guidelines still require workers to maintain the 1.5 metre rule where possible and the 1 person per 4m2 rule in indoor spaces.

The guides also now make reference to the option to download the COVID-Safe app to allow workers to keep track of anyone they come into contact with on a building site.
