The COVID-19 pandemic affected the construction industry around the country in many ways. As states begin to re-start the economy, it’s vital for employers to incorporate safety and wellness measures to protect construction workers from spreading the virus. To ensure appropriate steps are taken, Construction Industry employers are responsible to develop a comprehensive COVID-19 exposure control plan, which includes control measures such as social distancing; symptom checking; hygiene; decontamination procedures, and training. An exposure control plan must be followed to prevent any onsite worker from contracting COVID-19, as many people with COVID-19 are asymptomatic, and can potentially spread disease.
This seminar will focus on the most recent recommendations and guidelines that pertain to the content of an exposure control plan as well as the roles and responsibilities of individuals designated to enforce the plan on construction sites.
