Austrian Power Grid: Resumption of Construction Activities
To protect the workforce APG had suspended all construction work as of March 16. The new directive issued by the social partners (Protocol governing activities on construction sites in view of COVID-19; German title: Handlungsanleitung der Sozialpartner für den Umgang mit Baustellen aufgrund von COVID-19) as well as the meticulous planning of possible on site work in compliance with the above mentioned directive are now providing the basis for resuming the construction projects. “Our power grid is the lifeline of the Austrian economy. With our projects we make a considerable contribution to start the economy up again. Therefore it is necessary to resume the majority of our construction activities in an orderly manner and in doing so pay particular attention to the directive issued by the social partners as well as to highest standards regarding hygiene, disinfection and distancing measures“, says Christoph Schuh, APG’s corporate spokesperson.
