COVID-19 Update 09/04/20
The ACIFC has delivered an official statement to support members in light of the varied response to closing down construction sites.
In light of the current circumstances, the ACIFC are aware of difficulties facing our members in the decision to either remain on site or pull their workers off site. As such, the ACIFC is supportive of whichever decision members decide to make. This being said, we advise members that if they cannot implement and abide by the Site Operating Procedures as outlined in the CLC document, they halt work on the affected sites until operating procedures can be met.
As COVID-19 continues to spread, our thoughts go out to anyone who has been impacted. As an organisation, ACIFC has business continuity measures in place, and we are confident that the service we provide members will not be adversely affected, despite the obvious challenges right now.
ACIFC have taken the following measures with immediate effect:
SUSPENSION OF ALL FACE TO FACE MEETINGS.
As a result of the corona virus outbreak, and in line with current guidance, we have decided to cease all organised face to face meetings. Due to the fluid nature of the pandemic, we will continue to hold regular conference calls, which members are encouraged to join so that their invaluable input can be heard.
There will be further announcements regarding meetings and any changes as the situation develops.
PLANNING FOR CORONA VIRUS
ACIFC are here to support our members through this period of uncertainty by providing industry guidance and advice, which will cover some of the most commonly asked questions.
ACIFC updates will predominantly be on social media, to limit traffic in our members’ inboxes, enabling focus to remain on their companies and staff.
