OSHA and the CDC recommend that companies develop a plan to protect their employees and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
CPRW is offering a free COVID-19 Exposure Control Planning Tool that takes contractors through a step-by-step process to develop a customized plan for their organization that takes into account the specific type of work and jobsites involved, including what to consider when conducting a job hazard analysis for COVID-19, selecting appropriate controls, screening workers and visitors, training employees, and implementing the plan.
Remember to take advantage of your employees’ knowledge of job site conditions as you develop your plan.
Plan steps include:
Step 1: Identify COVID-19 jobsite exposure risks and controls.
Step 2: Identify procedures for screening employees and dealing with exposed workers.
Step 3: Describe the COVID-19-focused training that will be provided to employees.
Step 4: Provide information on the project, who is responsible for implementing the plan, and actions that will prevent the spread of COVID-19 on the job.
At the end of theses steps, you will have completed a written plan tailored for your job that can be saved, printed, and emailed. There is an option to confidentially register if you want to save and edit your plan(s) at a later time, but registration is not required to use this free tool.
