Construction

Construction, labour hire firms and commercial cleaning are included in the list of authorised providers and authorised workers.

Workers who can work from home, such as head office roles, should do so but onsite activities may continue.

Important information for businesses


Cleaning, signage, record keeping, and other COVIDSafe requirements continue to apply for all venues and facilities with on-site operations.

All businesses are encouraged to use the Victorian Government QR Code Service and to ensure that customers check in. It is mandatory for some sectors to use the Victorian Government QR Code Service – a full list can be found here.

Your business must have an active, up-to-date COVIDSafe Plan.

Businesses that fail to do the right thing face significant fines.

Vaccinations


Victorians aged 40-49 years are now able to access the Pfizer vaccine at state-run vaccination sites. People aged 40-49 years receiving the Pfizer vaccine must book an appointment by calling the Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398. This is essential as not all vaccination centres will have the Pfizer vaccine available.

Victorians aged 50 years and over will continue to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, either through a state-run vaccination centre or a participating GP clinic. Find your nearest site.

Stay up to date

Stay up to date with the latest exposure sites. Anyone with symptoms should get tested immediately. The list of testing sites includes wait times.

For more information go to coronavirus.vic.gov.au or call the Business Victoria hotline on 13 22 15.

Advice for practitioners

Comprehensive guidelines have been created to outline the steps to be taken to best provide a safe and healthy environment, and identify the action available in the event of interruption to building and construction work as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

These Guidelines have been adopted and agreed by the Victorian Building and Construction Unions and Employer and Industry Associations, and endorsed by the Building Industry Consultative Council.

They are regularly updated to reflect changes resulting from Government announcements, directions of the Victorian Chief Health Officer and best practices.
