The Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) has called on construction firms to share stories of good practice, where sites are operating within Public Health England and industry guidance on coronavirus.
The IPA has put together a template for firms to fill out and said that it could help to demonstrate that where employers and individual employees across the sector can follow the guidance, there is a beneficial outcome for all.
It has asked companies to fill out the below template with positive examples of where sites are continuing to operate safely and the benefits of this. This could also include where essential work needs to be completed and/or where it is critical for sites to stay open.
Completed responses, following the template below, can be sent to: [email protected]
