Preparing for the second wave
As Australia continues to navigate our way through the pandemic, many are wary of a ‘second-wave’ of infections particularly with ongoing community transmission in Victoria. The industry has been fortunate to have avoided widespread shutdowns during the pandemic and is now gearing up for a ‘construction-led’ recovery. How then do we prepare for ongoing work in a COVID19 environment?
Some operators are already instituting measures such as:
- Social Distancing
- Staggered Shifts
- Self contained teams
- Temperature Checks
- Remote working (obviously only a possibility for some)
The below article (although US based) raises some interesting points both in real-world actions but also legal/insurance considerations that the industry will face in coming months.
