The construction industry is urging the Government to mandate vaccinations for worksites.

Health and education workers already have mandates and now Master Builders wants to follow suit for construction workers.

Their members want mandates for security and to clear up confusion.

Master Builders Chief Executive David Kelly told Andrew Dickens the construction industry is difficult to control because the sector is all separate businesses and they don't control all of them.

"What we've heard back very clearly is that people are finding it very difficult, it's very confusing, and it's just holding things up and the fear is that's just going to get worse."
