New Signage for Essential Construction Workers
The Construction Industry Coronavirus Forum, of which CECA Scotland is a leading member, has issued protective signage for key workers carrying out emergency and essential projects in another initiative to support the construction sector in Scotland during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The posters and stickers, designed to be displayed on sites or on vans, carry the legend ‘Key worker on site: carrying out essential work’. They are designed to deflect reported harassment and abuse which has been directed at employees by members of the public.
The signage will alert the public to the fact that workers they see in the streets or on sites are not flouting the rules but instead are performing vital roles, in line with guidelines, to ensure that the fabric of the country remains in good condition during the lockdown.
It is hoped that these new signs will help clarify that essential work is underway.
As well as posters and stickers for contractors, the signage also include posters for customers to put in windows, with the collateral now distributed to each of the Forum’s 23 member organisations.
