NSW Construction Workers Allowed Back On Site If They Meet "Vaccination Conditions"
NSW Construction Workers Allowed Back On Site If They Meet "Vaccination Conditions". Construction workers in Sydney are ready to pick up the tools with the latest announcement around COVID-19 safe workplaces.
Vaccine hesitant workers are now booking their appointments after Deputy Premier John Barilaro announced that vaccinated workers will be allowed back on site next week.
Stephen Younan, owner of a construction company from Bexley North, said he was unsure about the safety of the vaccine, but the latest announcement has proven to him booking a jab is the right thing to do.
"There's so much conspiracy theories. Made up stories, that you can't really get away from," he said.
"Yeah I was worried going out to work every day, it was a risk that I had to take to provide for my family. Now I 100 per cent want the vaccine, and I want all my guys to be vaccinated."
Mr Younan has seen a 60 per cent drop in work since the eight local government areas (LGAs) of Canterbury-Bankstown, Fairfield, Blacktown, Parramatta, Liverpool, Cumberland, Georges River and Campbelltown were locked down.
