The Lagos State government yesterday said it will not hesitate to blacklist any contractor or firm found flouting COVID-19 guidelines at construction sites.
The Commissioner for Housing, Moruf Akinderu-Fatai, who disclosed this said the information has already been cascaded to all contractors and professionals working at its various housing schemes across the state.
He enjoined all contractors and other professionals on-site at its various housing schemes to comply strictly with the recently released COVID-19 Guidelines on Construction Sites in Lagos State. Also, the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Mr. Wasiu Akewusola, said all scheme officers have been directed to henceforth be at alert that no ongoing project has more than 15 workers per construction activity.
He said: “All contractors have also been mandated to make adequate provisions for washing of hands and alcohol-based sanitizers for their work gangs. Social distancing of not less than five feet including compulsory use of facemasks should be adhered to by all workers on the sites.”
