CITB Daily Update

Good afternoon,

I hope you’re keeping well.

This is my latest update on CITB’s work to support the construction industry during the COVID-19 crisis. To see the support packages CITB has already introduced for employers please visit our COVID-19 update page.

Today my key messages are on a video summary of our COVID-19 industry support packages to date and information on CITB’s Toolbox Talks.

Video Summary
Since the COVID-19 outbreak began CITB has listened to feedback from our customers and put together a support package based on the biggest concern – cash flow. To find out more on CITB’s support for customers on the Levy, Grants and Apprenticeships please watch the short video here.

Don’t forget we’ve also set up an ‘Urgent Messages’ page on our website where you can find the latest information and links. If you require more information and would like to talk to a CITB adviser in your area please click here.

Toolbox Talk for Site Operators
To help protect health on construction sites and maintain social distancing during COVID-19, CITB has produced a toolbox talk for construction workers. Topics covered include: travelling to work and what to do if someone thinks they are unwell. More details, including posters for supervisors to display in the workplace, can be found here. Further safety guidance from the Construction Leadership Council can be found here.

CITB’s COVID-19 updates page is being refreshed daily and includes information on a range of subjects including Grants, Funding and the NCC. Please click here to view it.
