Construction Industry Safety Best Practices

Friday, May 1st, 2020

SOCIAL DISTANCING

  • Avoid in person meetings, hold safety meetings by phone.
  • Limit unnecessary visits to the jobsite and work trailer.
  • Increasepersonal space to at least 6 feet.
  • Consider staggered shifts.
  • Minimize ridesharing.
PROTECT CO-WORKERS

  • Stay home if you’re feeling sick.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Avoid using co-worker’s phones, work tools and equipment.
  • Wear masks over nose and mouth to prevent spreading the virus.
JOB SITE CLEANING

  • Common areas should be cleaned at least once per day and trash changed frequently, using proper PPE.
  • Disinfect work surfaces, equipment and frequently touched areas including door handles, time clocks, machinery controls, etc., with EPA-approved disinfectants with claims against emerging viral pathogens.
  • Increase personal space to at least 6 feet.
  • Any portable jobsite toilets should be cleaned by the leasing company at least twice per week and disinfected on the inside. High touch areas (like door handles, locks, toilet seat) should be disinfected more frequently.
OTHER TIPS

  • Consider screening visitors with questions that are safe to ask, such as:
    • > Have you traveled outside the country in the past 14 days?
    • > Have you had contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19?
    • > Are you currently experiencing fever over 100,difficulty breathing or cough?
  • Have tissues and trash receptacles easily accessible.
  • Train employees how to properly put on, use/wear and remove protective clothing and equipment.
  • Encourage workers to report any safety and health concerns.
HAND HYGIENE

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water.
  • If soap and running water are not available, use at least 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
