Making space on site

Making space on site

It is important that as an industry, and as individuals, we demonstrate our commitment and capacity to operate safe, secure and healthy work environments over coming weeks and months.

Continuing to follow the Commonwealth and State/Territory Governments’ separation and distancing principles, to maintain a high level of hygiene on housing sites and to closely manage site access and security, is a key responsibility for any one managing building work.

HIA Making space on site guidelines

HIA has developed a set of industry guidelines to help members manage their residential building work sites and the risks from COVID-19.

Following this guideline can provide a way for you to demonstrate your company’s commitment to the ongoing health, safety and security of your sites and your workforce.

HIA recommends that a copy be printed and placed on your worksites to remind everyone of their responsibilities.
