April 16 Safety Stand Down:
The NAHB has developed a COVID-19 Job Site Safety Stand Down toolkit to educate residential construction workers on how to protect themselves from the coronavirus outbreak. The stand down will focus on the steps needed to help stop the spread of the coronavirus on job sites. These include maintaining a distance of no less than six feet from others at all times, limiting the number of workers in groups to 10, and properly sanitizing frequently used tools, equipment, and frequently touched surfaces. NAHB has developed a blueprint for builders, available in English and Spanish, to conduct these COVID-19 safety stand downs.
Jobsite and Worker Safety:
The CAHB and its partners have worked closely with the state of Colorado and local officials to ensure that construction remains an essential service during the current COVID “stay-at-home” orders. In order to remain working during the current and future orders, we need to work together to ensure that all workers are following social distancing practices as much as possible.
Remember, working through this Order is a privilege. We need to demonstrate that we have responsible jobsites so the privilege isn’t revoked.
Jobsite and worker safety resources:
- CDPHE guidance on worksite safety
- English and Spanish-language handout that can be distributed at worksites and posted in key locations. Please take a moment to review the content and to ask all jobsite managers to distribute this handout.
- NAHB toolkit to help further promote and institute COVID-19 prevention, preparedness and response plans.
- AGC of Colorado Jobsite Protocol & Best Practices for Construction
