With construction being listed as an essential service during the COVID-19 outbreak, building will continue. That means work sites will still be bustling with workers in close proximity to one another, so it’s time to consider the implications of what this means.
Colin Toop from Tools of the Trade podcast suggests analyzing areas of the job site with common touch points and offers this advice:
The benefit of construction being essential at this time is that workers are still being employed and progress is being made on much-needed facilities. But maintaining these services means higher risk for keeping employees safe. Companies should work diligently to clean what they can and when cleaning products are not available, workers should be encouraged to bring their own supplies from home.
“It is up to us to come together as a construction community. Everybody has to do their part. Companies are trying to be transparent and are looking to get supplies. When they can’t access those supplies, take it upon yourself to keep yourself safe, your coworkers safe, your family safe.”
