HOW WILL COVID-19 AFFECT THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY?
Job Sites Will Be Safer
Coronavirus has put a spotlight on the importance of worker health and safety.
Many U.S. contractors have responded by implementing new policies such as staggered shifts, employee temperature checks, and the complete disinfection of job sites, tools, and machinery.
Some construction managers have done things like implementing a ban on carpooling, a mask and glove policy, and well-stocked hand-washing stations.
There is a significant emphasis on cleaner, less crowded work areas. It isn’t likely to go away as soon as the virus does.
State, local, and federal regulations will likely reinforce the new normal, and OSHA could even require employers to develop written infectious disease preparedness and response plans.
Companies need to be flexible and creative to think of new ways to perform certain tasks that they have performed in the same way for many years up until this point.
