ASGA details construction and manufacturing worker regulations during VIC lockdown

As Victoria has endures its fifth lockdown, Mick Harrold ASGA Victorian Chair, provides important details related to regulations around construction and manufacturing.

“Construction and manufacturing are authorised Industries,” confirms Mick, adding: “The only caveat on that seems to be work on occupied buildings. This doesn't include businesses that are allowed to be open.

“So essentially, only residential homes are not allowed (unless it is essential). This means on any unoccupied site or businesses permitted to be open, any construction is okay.  Not just essential construction either – all construction.  Sign installation falls under the construction banner, so we are of the opinion that we can install signs. 

“The main thing here is that you do not work near the general public – shops that are operating and so on. Even outdoors you should create some breathing space around your site in order to be safe.

“Indoors, do your work when nobody is there or have a good plan in place if the work is really essential signage and you cannot avoid it,” he adds, confirming that regulations related to masks, COVID-safe plans etc. remain unchanged; and advising members to keep their own counsel on all business decisions.
