Monday, May 4, the first phase of lifting restrictions in Cyprus.

According to the easing of the lockdown the construction sector will be opened up.

All workflow will proceed in accordance with new guidelines.

On Thursday, April 30, the health and labor ministries issued a series of guidelines for protective workers on construction sites during the first phase of the gradual relaxations of measures against the spread of coronavirus.

The guides are the following:

  • Should be created separate zones, with no more than 1 in each
  • Skin-to-skin contact and / or face-to-face contact with other workers is prohibited
  • Construction sites should be equipped with all kind of mechanical equipment to minimize the contact between employees
  • Workers should be provided with all necessary protection and hygiene
  • Install video surveillance, if it’s possible, to monitor the stages of contraction and monitor the work of employees, to exclude the physical presence of the supervisor near workers.

Working together at a distance of less than 2 meters:

  • Minimize the frequency and duration of time, when workers at the distance of less than 2 meters
  • Reduce the number of workers involved in one task
  • Work side by side, without looking at / facing each other
  • Provide regular ventilation
  • Follow the rules of personal hygiene – wash and disinfect hands before and after using any tools or work equipment
  • Use masks or face shields
  • Create a constant group of employees of up to 3 people maximum, who will work together in one team.

Costas Rusias, the head of the Federation of Associations of Construction Contractors of Cyprus, said that he was pleased to reopen the construction sector.

In his opinion, there is a breath of fresh air for everyone. The damage is estimated at tens of millions EUR because of the coronavirus.

At the same time, he said that the new guidelines for the constriction sector are inappropriate in some cases. For example, construction involves teamwork. And some points of innovation completely contradict this. 

But, he added that the most important thing now is to protect people. So, let's be hoped that those guidelines will reduce the risks of infection at contraction sites during processes.
