Safe Work Practices

1. Social Distancing

Social distancing is a tool public health officials recommend to slow the spread of a disease that is being passed from person to person. Simply put, it means that people stay far enough away from each other so that the coronavirus – or any pathogen – cannot spread from one person to another. Social distancing minimises contact between potentially infected individuals and healthy individuals. JEG will ensure workers maintain the required social distance separation in so far as reasonable practicable while working, when using toilets, canteens, drying rooms or anywhere they may be positioned while onsite.

Signage will be posted highlighting social distancing requirements at turnstiles, site access routes and pathways, for office space, meetings, office kitchen area, public transport, site vehicles, drying rooms, canteen facilities, toilets and the stores.

2. Cleaning of Plant & Equipment

Enhanced cleaning procedures must be in place across all sites to prevent cross contamination, particularly in communal areas and at touch points.

Organise work practices to reduce, eliminate or reduce transmission points and coach site personnel on the same. Please see below checklists for your onsite vehicles.

Below is a list of other items for consideration prior to / after use

  • Taps and washing facilities
  • Toilet flush and seats
  • Door handles and push plates
  • Handrails on staircases and corridors
  • Lift and hoist controls
  • Food preparation and eating surfaces
  • Communications equipment
  • Keyboards, photocopiers and other office equipment
  • Rubbish collection and storage points should be increased and emptied regularly throughout and at the end of each day
  • Regular cleaning of site welfare facilities, handrails and touch points should be undertaken.
