Update to site operating procedures

Update to site operating procedures

The Site Operating Procedures have been updated to incorporate a number of technical changes as a result of the recently published Government guidance on “Working Safely during Coronavirus (COVID‐19) ‐ Construction & Other Outdoor Work.”

Changes to the Site Operating Procedures ‐ Version 4 are minimal and include:

  • Removal of the requirement for face‐to‐face contact to be kept to 15 minutes or less
  • The section on PPE now links to the latest Government guidance on face coverings
  • References to one‐way systems and the reconfiguration of seating and tables and an update on portable toilets
  • The requirement to share risk assessments with the workforce
  • Clarification on when to travel to work, as set out in the Government’s COVID‐19 Recovery Strategy
  • Updated links and wording on social distancing.

CITB has produced a range of checklists to help employers implement the Site Operating Procedures in practice:
