Formentera Local Police enforce safety measures at construction sites

foto 2020 policia control obresIn an effort to limit coronavirus exposure and safeguard the health of not just workers but islanders at large, local law enforcement have taken to construction sites across the island to raise awareness and see to it that safety measures are being respected.

As the Covid-19 health crisis continues, construction is one of the sectors of the economy that remains active, with agreement still elusive regarding the reduction or suspension of services. Even still, staff of construction firms are required to adopt a series of specific preventive measures.

Among the health protocol that businesses and employees must follow are preventive measures as regards travel and construction workers.

Local officers of the law oversee patrols and hand out material to educate people on steps to follow such as physical distancing, thorough cleaning of tools and machinery and proper use of safety materials.

Weekend of stops on highways and country roads
Chief of interior Josep Marí applauded “the fabulous work during the health crisis of local police”. “Officers are already stopping people on highways and backroads and this weekend those patrols will be ramped up across country roads and at the entrances of beaches and the nature reserve”, he said, saying that the idea is to make sure everyone obeys the rules of confinement or else has a valid motive for leaving the house. Members of Civil Protection will be deployed to help as well.

Formentera’s police officers, too, will be following a set of strict measures to avoid transmission of coronavirus amongst themselves. Although partners will remain fixed so one sick officer doesn’t contaminate the whole force, officers will no longer travel two to a car. Officers must also wash their hands and their vehicles, among other measures, indicated Conseller Marí.
