The Construction Leadership Council and the CITB have worked together to produce a comprehensive range of checklists and forms to help the construction industry protect their workforce.
The guidance has been designed so those who return to work have a clear understanding of how they can apply the CLC’s COVID-19 Site operating procedures and the documents cover issues such as close working, cleaning and what employees should do if they become unwell.
CC01: COVID-19 – Site operating procedures compliance checklist
An interactive checklist, designed to be used to ensure compliance with current guidance on protecting your workforce on site during the COVID-19 pandemic. The checklist can be amended with additional comments to ensure it aligns with specific site policies. The checklist will help organisations to establish whether crucial health and safety principles are embedded in their day-to-day operations during the pandemic.
CC02: COVID-19 – Health, safety and environmental risk assessment template
A guide offering example control measures for those required to undertake risk assessment of the workplace and specific activities on site. An interactive risk assessment template is also included in order to facilitate this process.
CC03: COVID-19 – A toolbox talk for construction workers
Designed to be delivered to construction workers by their manager or supervisor. Good communication is essential for health and safety management on construction sites. It is vitally important that contractors, managers and supervisors engage and consult with workers, as it is an effective way of identifying hazards and controlling risks.
CC04: COVID-19 – Weekly site operating procedures checklist
An interactive checklist, designed to ensure on-going compliance with both established and additional procedures.
The CITB has also released their complete library of 98 interactive checklists and forms from our GE700 Construction Site Safety publication for free download. The comprehensive range of checklists and forms are designed to help with the day-to-day management of construction sites.
