COVID-19: Updated Building Industry Guidelines (Version 7) Released

Published: 21 Aug 2020

An updated version (V7) of the Guidelines For The Building And Construction Industry Victoria was released on August 21, 2020 and is available for download.

About the Guidlines

The Guidelines were created by the CFMEU along with other relevant unions and industry groups.

The Guidelines provide direction to employers and workers for the steps required to be taken to best provide a safe and healthy environment, and the actions available in the event of interruption to building and construction work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

These Guidelines have been adopted and agreed between the unions and the industry associations involved in their development, and incorporate the “Best practice for managing construction sites in the coronavirus environment” issued by the Victorian state government on 29 March 2020.

We have endeavoured to take a whole of industry approach and the Guidelines should not be limited to any particular sector.
