Construction sites

Tradesmen and suppliers access construction sites every day, increasing the chance of spreading infection through airborne means, direct contact (hands) and contaminated surfaces.

A single outbreak can cause the closure of a work site and considerable delays to projects.

Surfaces that can become easily contaminated on a construction site include work equipment, tool handles, clocking-in equipment, clothing, rest rooms, dressing rooms, break areas, kitchen facilities, meeting rooms, etc.

Inadequate ventilation and cleaning protocols heighten the risks, along with a lack of wash basins on some work sites.
