Safety remains the top priority as more permitted workers return to Victoria’s Big Build construction sites this week, under the Second Step of Victoria’s roadmap to reopening.

A range of innovative, high-tech safety initiatives have been developed and implemented on project sites, including giving crews access to frequent coronavirus testing.

As part of a 100-day testing blitz, a mobile COVID testing bus is travelling to worksites across the state.

Other initiatives include daily temperature checks, on-site Bluetooth tracking technology and a rapid response team to help with testing and contact tracing.

Construction contractors are leading the way in developing COVIDSafe Plans to keep people in jobs and our building program on track, and our 70-strong team of safety specialists is continuing to monitor adherence to the strict measures in place.
