CPWR continues to expand our resources to help construction employers and workers take necessary precautions to keep safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
In September, we launched a free online COVID-19 Exposure Control Planning Tool, in response to a recommendation from the CDC and OSHA that employers create a plan to protect employees and visitors to their job sites from exposure to COVID-19 and prevent the spread of the disease. Feedback is welcome — send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are now more than 250 resources in the CPWR COVID-19 Construction Clearinghouse, which we established to give our industry easier access to reliable, current information. It also highlights resources on crucial topics such as Guidance on Workplace Practices, State and Local Requirements, Training Resources, and many others. The materials from other organizations that were previously on this page have been moved to the Clearinghouse. If you know of materials that should be considered for the Clearinghouse, particularly innovative practices and equipment being used on job sites to prevent the spread of COVID-19, please click here or email us at email@example.com. Our staff will follow up to learn more.
CPWR and NABTU have also issued the COVID-19 Standards for U.S. Construction Sites, national standard for infectious disease exposure control practices for job sites designed to prevent disease, disability and death. They are available in English and Spanish. Also available is a Toolbox Talk in English and Spanish.
For Union Training Centers, CPWR has put out Recommendations for a COVID-19 Plan. This is a living document and will be updated regularly.
