Government Plans to Ease Covid-19 Restrictions – Roofing Works to Resume in Ireland
The Irish government announced a phased plan to ease Covid-19 restrictions and get Ireland back to work. The full plan can be viewed here.
When Can Roofing Work Resume in Ireland?
Under Phase 1 of the plan, all construction work including roofing can resume on May 18th 2020. SM Roofing are delighted to get back to work and resume our essential services. In order to do this, we must implement new health & safety measures set out by the HSE and the Construction Industry Federation(CIF). We assure all our customers that we have completed CIF training and are proud to announce we are Covid-19 compliant. All of this is to safeguard our customers and workforce by minimizing any risk of infection. Site Managers will be present on all our roofing sites in Ireland to oversee and ensure the operation of these safety guidelines.
SM Roofing Ireland’s onsite measures will include:
No sick workers will be allowed on any roofing site. Any symptomatic workers must self-isolate at home for a minimum of 14 days before returning to work
All workers are obliged to wash/sanitize their hands regularly. Hand sanitizers will be provided by SM Roofing on all roofing sites.
Our workers will be encouraged to maintain social distancing of at least 2 meters where possible when working. Breaks will be staggered and workers are to travel to work individually.
All workers must cough and sneeze into their elbow or into a tissue and dispose of tissues safely.
Our roofing site manager will ensure that all regularly touched surfaces or tools are cleaned and disinfected often
Although not in the HSE guidelines, all of our workers will be encouraged to wear a mask where possible when on the roofing site.
All employees will be trained on the importance of these new health and safety measures.
Safety assessments will also be carried out for smaller residential roofing jobs. We will discuss our safety measures in detail directly with our customers prior to starting any roofing work.
