Information sharing for the Construction Industry – Updated 11 May

Information sharing for the Construction Industry relating to the Coronavirus Outbreak

The Coronavirus outbreak poses challenges for the construction industry at present. Despite the challenges, construction remains an important activity and it is a high priority for everyone working in this industry.

ACRA, affiliated Association and Government bodies are committed to supporting the construction industry during the challenges associated with the Coronavirus outbreak, one way we are doing this is via information and resources sharing.

Information that has been shared covers almost everything from site works, planning, procedures, working from home and even tool box talk tips and even a recovery plan + more. This webpage includes documents provided by industry leaders, to promote the sharing of information on the steps being taken to reduce the impacts associated with Coronavirus, so that together, as an industry, we keep people on our construction sites and workplaces, safe and healthy.

This webpage also includes links to the latest Coronavirus information from government agencies, including Infrastructure NSW, Health agencies, SafeWork Australia and COVID-19 Legislation (Public Health Orders, Environment & Planning Orders, Acts of Parliament and Regulations).

Document listing:

Thank you to our industry leaders such as TfNSW for making this information available to all within the construction industry.

These can be used in all states but please check SafeWork Australia website for any changes and updates within your state https://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/construction.
