I have posted a combination of COVID 19 residential building guidelines that I developed for my own business.
***WHS guidelines have progressed rapidly & significantly, for the most up to date guidelines from MBA, please check their webpage here.***
I believe I was one of the first Tasmanian builders to develop WHS protocol for Covid 19, which we developed to promote worker safety at our building sites. We implemented our own business continuity checklist, Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS), posted information on site & shot some demonstration videos. In the spirit of fellowship, we shared this ‘Residential Building Prep Pack’ widely with the Tasmanian construction industry, including:
Business Continuity Checklist
Safe Work Method Statements
Construction Site Poster Pack
The site poster pack and video presentations are still on the Master Builders Tasmania Covid 19 webpage.
This was done in an open source manner and with very regular updates from other members to begin the development of an industry consensus. These guidelines were received by Master Builders Tasmania and circulated to members state-wide. The executive director of Master Builders Tasmania Matthew Pollock subsequently invited me to provide feedback on developing WHS guidelines which have progressed significantly, for the most up to date guidelines from MBA, please check their webpage here.
