Under all Alert Levels businesses need to put together appropriate health and safety controls, and physical distancing is of prime importance. This means everyone on the construction site needs to keep one metre between themselves and others. The control plan needs to show how hygiene requirements such as hand washing are being undertaken, plus what measures are in place if contact tracing is required.
Each construction site operating at Alert Levels 2 and above needs to have in place a COVID-19 Control Plan. This plan will guide how the principal or main contractor and contractors will manage work on site and the controls they will use to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission. There must always be a nominated person on site when work is occurring who is responsible for administering the COVID-19 management plan. This can be shared among multiple people from different contractors for an individual site if required.
Each contractor must provide to the site owner a COVID-19 Plan detailing the steps they will take to mitigate risks, including those who may present with COVID-19. The details of the plan should be communicated to workers before they start work

EROAD Inspect Complete pretrip checks and Health and Safety protocols. Utilise the notes field in the Inspect item, for any additional passenger information.
You can create a COVID-19 related pretrip checklist for the vehicle in the EROAD Inspect App. Check for items such as: Antibacterial products, Face mask, Goggles, Gloves, PPE equipment, COVID-19 signage, Sign-in register, Additional passenger names, Vehicle cleaning / sanitising.
Each site must be set up with a sign in register at the entry point that includes: name, full contact details, time in, which unit (if multi-unit) the worker is accessing, and a health declaration. Note: This can be completed through a software / app-based system so long as all visitors are captured. This should also gather where the person has come from and when they are leaving for their next destination.
Site owners should coordinate works to ensure, unless unavoidable, that only one trade is operating on a single house site at any given time. Site owners / contractors need to ensure suppliers who will make deliveries to a site, have a COVID-19 plan and that Delivery Drivers will be trained in how to operate the plan.
All contractors, visitors and those making deliveries are required to sign out before they leave the site. This information needs to include the next destination, to assist with contact tracing in the event of a suspected COVID-19 case.
If in the unfortunate circumstance one of your drivers comes into contact with a person who has a suspected COVID-19 infection, EROAD can assist with wider contact tracing efforts. This is due to the GPS capabilities of the EROAD telematics solution, which utilises the Ehubo hardware unit fitted into company vehicles. The free EROAD Contact Tracing Service, can be called on in the case of a suspected infection, and this report can be used to help demonstrate to authorities your capability to record who your employees came into contact with.
