    This document was developed to encompass the minimum Critical Controls that need to be implemented across all of our projects to ensure that we keep our people and the public safe at all times whilst managing COVID-19. Like our FSR and SER’s you need only apply to standards that are applicable to your project’s scope of works. If at any time your project/office is unable to implement the required controls, please complete a risk assessment and advise your respective General Manager of the alternate controls that can be implemented. Exemptions must be approved by the General Manager prior to implementation.
