CITB has worked with the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) to produce a range of interactive checklists and forms to help construction employers apply ‘site operating procedures’

The resources will ensure that construction employers have a clear understanding of how they can apply the CLC’s Covid-19 site operating procedures guidance (Version 3) in practice.

Guidance for construction employers on issues such as close working, cleaning and what employees should do if they become unwell is included.

The checklists include:

CC01: COVID-19 – Site operating procedures compliance checklist 

An interactive checklist designed to be used to ensure compliance with current guidance on protecting your workforce on site during the Covid-19 pandemic. The checklist can be amended with additional comments to ensure it aligns with specific site policies.

The checklist will help organisations to establish whether crucial health and safety principles are embedded in their day-to-day operations during the pandemic.

CC02: COVID-19 – Health, safety and environmental risk assessment template  

A guide offering example control measures for those required to undertake risk assessment of the workplace and specific activities on site.

An interactive risk assessment template is also included to facilitate this process.

CC03: COVID-19 – A toolbox talk for construction workers  

Designed to be delivered to construction workers by their manager or supervisor. Good communication is essential for health and safety management on construction sites. It is vitally important that contractors, managers and supervisors engage and consult with workers, as it is an effective way of identifying hazards and controlling risks.

CC04: COVID-19 – Weekly site operating procedures checklist  

An interactive checklist designed to ensure on-going compliance with both established and additional procedures.

Additional resources

CITB has also launched a library of 98 interactive checklists and forms from their GE700 Construction Site Safety publication for free download. The comprehensive range of checklists and forms are designed to help with the day-to-day management of construction sites.
