Confusion for Construction companies during the COVID 19 crisis

Government advice during the COVID 19 crisis has been clear for many but a lot of confusion is left for the Construction industry. The governments’ position continues to be that ‘construction sites can continue to operate but MUST implement its Site Operating Procedures’.

Alok Sharma, Secretary of State for Business has stated that where work cannot be undertaken from home, people should go to work, and employers must follow Public Health England (PHE) guidance. Build UK on behalf of the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has developed Site Operating Procedures specifically for construction sites to ensure they are compliant. The CLC has confirmed that all construction sites should assess their situation and those sites that cannot implement the Site Operating Procedures should not remain open.

The Construction industry seems to be split on this. Some construction sites are shutting down operations for the safety of staff and their families, however some are continuing and trying to implement their Site Operating Procedures to ensure contractual obligations are met.

Hydrajaws have now made the decision to run at a limited capacity with a skeleton staff. Our commitment to providing a dedicated service has not stopped, as we continue to take enquiries and future order requirements. So please feel free to contact us via email [email protected] or through our social channels during this unprecedented time. Orders will be processed but at a reduced rate and delays may be unavoidable.

Our conclusion is for each company to make its own decision and balance protecting staff with safeguarding companies’ futures. Now more than ever we all need to take sensible precautions, apply logic and most importantly stay safe.
