This is an urgent reminder for construction employers to enforce strict health and safety guidelines, and vigilant oversight of every worker, on every job, in an effort to uphold COVID-19 protocols.
Multiple areas around the country have shut down all construction. We can do our part to avoid this same fate. Our entire industry is at risk of shutdown if we cannot operate safely, together.
While we can't control the global pandemic, we can control what happens on our individual job sites. It is imperative that workers fully understand that each and every action they take can impact not only themselves and their families, but also every single person both on the job site and in their respective communities.
One person operating unsafely on one job site threatens the lives and livelihood of the entire industry.
