To help limit the spread of COVID-19, all construction workers in the Melbourne lockdown area will be required to wear a face mask at work.*

This new rule begins at midnight tonight (Wednesday July 22, 2020).

As with all PPE, your employer must provide you with this safety equipment. You can also make your own if you’d prefer.

This new rule is in addition to the requirement to wear a mask when out in public (like getting to and from work, or at smoko).

If you need more info, visit the DHHS website.

* Some exemptions may apply in certain medical and OHS situations.
