It is now officially mandatory for anyone in metropolitan Melbourne municipalities to wear a face mask if they leave home. And while there are some specific exemptions, all workers or visitors on domestic building sites must wear a face mask unless it is not practicable to do so. Please note that scarves and bandanas are not permitted due to safety reasons.
Instructions on how to correctly where your face mask are here.
All workers must have access to PPE (including face masks) and all contractors entering work sites must provide their own PPE (including face masks) as well as continuing to maintain social distancing and following good hygiene practices.
It is our joint responsibility to follow this advice to ensure a safe and healthy environment for everyone onsite and the general public.
If you require any clarification as to when you need to be wearing a mask or what the exemptions are, please let me know and I’ll happily assist you or you can review the latest industry guidelines or current information on the DHHS website.
