#RebuildingTogether – NEW CICV Animations

New CICV Forum animations remind public to play their part and let construction workers do their jobs safely

The Construction Industry Coronavirus (CICV) Forum has launched a colourful new social media campaign reminding the public to let construction workers do their jobs safely as Scotland strives to rebuild the sector.

Released under the theme of #RebuildingTogether, the latest initiative uses two short animations to highlight the need for co-operation and respect for workers operating in difficult circumstances.

The clips, designed to be shared on social media, feature workers called ‘Paul’ and ‘Gill’ who put a strong emphasis on physical distancing and letting workers do their jobs safely.

To help the public feel more confident about commissioning work, the campaign is also accompanied by a downloadable PDF leaflet that sets out clearly what workers and clients are expected to do – and not do – throughout projects.

This new campaign emphasises the Forum’s message that we’re all #RebuildingTogether and that it’s important that everyone takes personal responsibility for their actions in the interest of themselves, their colleagues and the wider community.

In the last month alone, the CICV Forum, of which CECA Scotland is a leading members, has issued seven health and safety advice documents, updated its operating guidance and reminded construction workers to observe physical distancing in their social lives too.
