Following the development of a new pandemic Standard announced back in August, an eCourse, ‘Setting up and operating a safe construction site during COVID-19’ is now live on CITB’s eCourses platform.

Government guidance is for construction sites to remain open, with a reminder to review social distancing measures and comply with the Site Operating Procedures ‐ Version 6. The COVID-19 eCourse can be used alongside existing guidelines to ensure sites remain open safely, and as the Standard is not grant supported, CITB is offering this online course FREE of charge. Aimed primarily at managers and supervisors, the course will enable the confident and knowledgeable delivery of toolbox talks, and cover topics such as, ‘Understanding a Virus’ and ‘Social Distancing’.
