COVIDSafe Worksite Resources

Leadership organisations in Victoria’s building, development and construction industry have collaborated on COVIDSafe communication materials tailored to reach the industry’s culturally and linguistically diverse people.

This is an important campaign designed to keep the entire industry informed, engaged, safe and open.

Each week we communicate the COVIDSafe rules and responsibilities in different ways, recognising cultural differences will see some messages resonate with some more than others.

What you need to do:

  • Print the posters, put them up in your workplace, in all languages relevant to your workforce.
  • Share the social media tile with your community, colleagues, family and friends.

COVIDSAFE WORKSITE RESOURCES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED IN 16 LANGUAGES. SELECT THE LANGUAGE OF YOUR CHOICE.

PROTECT YOUR FAMILIES – WORK AND HOME

COVID-19 doesn’t stay at home, don’t bring it to work.

  • Don’t have guests at home, following the rules at home is important to stop the virus spreading.
  • If you feel sick, get tested, use your sick leave and stay home. It’s the right thing to do.
  • If you get tested the government may pay you to isolate – go to:
    visit: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/employee-isolation-payment-covid-19
  • Every sniffle counts – get your family members tested if they show symptoms.
  • What you do in the community is important. Don’t make bad choices and go to high risk areas involving crowds.

DON’T RUIN IT FOR EVERYBODY

Heroes follow the rules or use their sick days.

    • Don’t be the reason your site gets shut down by inspectors.
    • Follow your site rules and keep your jobs safe.
    • Wear a mask, wash your hands, keep your distance, don’t share lunch or tools.
    • Be a hero by not letting your friends and family down, stay home if you’re sick.
    • Don’t be the reason your family and friends get sick.

CAN YOU AFFORD NOT TO FOLLOW THE RULES?

IT’S TOUGH TO PAY THE BILLS WHEN YOUR WORKSITE IS CLOSED DOWN.

    • Follow the rules, everybody gets paid.
    • If your site is closed, nobody gets paid.
    • You won’t lose your job by being tested, just a few days.
    • It’s not worth the risk.
    • If you get tested, the government may pay you to isolate.
