COVID-19 Construction Site Safety Information
The spirit of BIA's efforts related to site safety is to facilitate a culture change on project sites and equip members with the basics needed to effectively keep workers safe. We want the construction industry to get back to the business of building and rebuilding this city, knowing how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and adopting practices and new standards of operation that will make job sites safe now and less likely to be shut down again in the future. It is incumbent on all of us to adhere to whatever safety protocols are mandated because if we don't, all of us will face the consequences.
