CPA Site Operating Procedures for Plant Occupations

Following the introduction of the Construction Leadership Council’s (CLC) Site Operating Procedures (SOP) and the Scottish Construction Industry Coronavirus Forum (CICV) Site Operating Guidance (SOG) on protecting the workforce during the coronavirus pandemic, the Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) and Scottish Plant Owners Association (SPOA) wrote a supplementary guidance publication for plant occupations.

The publication interprets the core requirements of the industry-based procedures and outlines a tailored set of additional requirements for a range of plant-based occupations. These include plant operators, supporting personnel such as slinger/signallers, traffic marshals etc. maintenance staff and plant delivery drivers.

Following the July 19 update to the CLC Site Operating Procedures (SOP) as a recommendation publication, the CPA and the Scottish Plant Owners Association (SPOA) have updated the plant occupations specific version to reflect the recommendational nature of the CLC publication.

The CPA/SPOA version 6 can be downloaded free of charge below.
