OSHA Issues New Guidance on COVID-19 Safety

New Safety Standard Likely Forthcoming (Feb 24, 2021)

Late last month, OSHA issued “stronger safety guidance” on mitigating and preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. This guidance includes a recommendation for implementing a workplace COVID-19 prevention program. While the new OSHA guidance does not create a new legal liability for employers, it does indicate to many close observers that the agency might be working on an emergency temporary standard (ETS) on COVID-19 safety procedures that will be enforceable by OSHA inspectors, including the possibility of citations and fines for non-compliance.

Safety Tips to Limit Exposure

On April 21, 2020, OSHA issued an alert listing safety tips employers can follow to help protect construction workers
from exposure to the Coronavirus. Alert: COVID-19 Guidance for the Construction Workforce
(Also found HERE in Spanish)


Detailed guidance on how employers should prepare themselves and their workers is available in English, Spanish, and now as an eBook.

Did you know that OSHA has free COVID-19 print resources?

You can order printed copies of OSHA COVID-19 posters and guidance booklets for your workplace. All items are free and available in multiple languages.
Visit OSHA’s publications page to place an order.

OSHA Has Answers to Questions About the Safety of Wearing Cloth Face Coverings

OSHA generally recommends that employers encourage workers to wear medical masks or cloth face coverings at work to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. OSHA recently issued frequently asked questions (FAQ) guidance to address inaccurate claims that these masks and face coverings cause unsafe oxygen or harmful carbon dioxide levels for the wearer.

National ‘STAND DOWN’ for Construction Safety

THANK YOU to All of Our Members Who Participated!

Many of our members and agency partners joined construction teams across the nation on April 16, 2020 for the National Association of Homebuilder’s Stand Down for Construction Safety. Throughout our community, builders and trade partners paused for 10 mins or more to talk about jobsite safety and protocols for working under the pressures of COVID-19. Our members rose to the occasion donning face masks and observing “Social Distancing” to discuss ways to protect themselves and our jobsites.
