Jun 09, 2020

OSHA's new COVID-19 for Construction webpage provides guidance for employers and workers regarding construction projects and activities. This guidance supplements the general, interim guidance for all workers and employers of workers with potential occupational exposures to SARS-CoV-2.

Go here to see the OSHA Construction-specific COVID-19 web page.

Contractors are encouraged to remain alert of changing outbreak conditions, including as they relate to community spread of the virus and testing availability, and implement infection prevention measures accordingly. As states or regions satisfy the gating criteria to progress through the phases of the Guidelines for Opening up America Again, you will likely be able to adapt this guidance to better suit evolving risk levels and necessary control measures in your workplaces.

Contractors should assess the hazards to which your workers may be exposed; evaluate the risk of exposure; and select, implement, and ensure workers use controls to prevent exposure.
