Throughout the face of a changing landscape in the construction industry’s day-to-day work practices, Aboitiz Construction elevates its own safety measures inside its project sites, project offices, and head offices, adapting to the new normal.

Though COVID-19 may not be the same form of work-related hazard the Aboitiz Construction sites have been accustomed to, this has put a greater focus on the value of safety and health at work sites. Aboitiz Construction has since then redefined and ramped up its safety measures—putting more significance on ensuring the protection of all team members, subcontractors, clients, and other key people in the sites.

We have executed physical distancing in our work areas (service vehicles, offices, canteens, barracks, and staging areas) and equipped with all preventive and control measures such as disinfection and wash bays, wearing of right PPE’s, constant health and temperature checks. These are all supported by constant communication of information and educating our team members on the correct safety measures.
