Workers' reviews of sites during COVID-19
Construction sites operating during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic need to ensure they are protecting their workforce and minimising the risk of spread of infection.
Recent guidance from the Construction Leadership Council and Build UK is intended to introduce consistent measures on sites of all sizes in line with the Government’s recommendations on social distancing.
earwig is an independent organisation with workers' welfare at its heart. We want to help paint an accurate picture of how well the guidance is being followed by sites. To do this, we're asking workers for their anonymous feedback, which we're publishing here every day.

Have hand-cleaning facilities at entrances and exits been provided? If so, are workers required to use them?
Have staggered start and finish times been introduced to reduce congestion and contact?
Have entry systems that require skin contact (e.g. fingerprint scanners) been removed or disabled?
Has it been possible for workers to sit 2 metres apart from each other whilst eating to avoid all contact?
Have you been asked to do any work that requires skin to skin contact?
Has re-usable PPE been thoroughly cleaned after use and not shared between workers?
