When occupied premises work can resume in Victoria

Construction and non-essential maintenance in Melbourne will be able to resume once Victoria passes 70 per cent double dose vaccinated. 
The Victorian Government has advised that construction, building and non-essential maintenance work can recommence at occupied premises in metropolitan Melbourne once Victoria passes the 70 per cent double dose target and moves to Phase B on the Roadmap.

What this means for electrical contractors:

  • workers will be able to work both indoors and outdoors at occupied premises
  • workers can work in occupied premises where the work must take place in the home, for example, cleaning, maintenance and renovations
  • a maximum of five workers plus a supervisor will be permitted, unless additional workers are required for safety reasons
  • workers must have received at least a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine (the second dose deadline is 15 November) or have a valid medical exemption.

For further information about work at occupied premises and workforce limits, read the Construction sector page – Frequently asked questions.
