Minimal-Contact Ways to Ensure Safety and Compliance on the Jobsite | Trimble Partner Resources
In the event of a health crisis like the current COVID-19 pandemic, the construction industry has to adapt to new health and safety guidelines. In addition to what’s being recommended at the state and local levels, a recent bulletin from OSHA recommends allowing workers to wear masks, maintaining at least six feet of distance from other workers, even in trailers, as well as limiting attendance at toolbox talks and other safety meetings.
On a busy jobsite with numerous crews working alongside each other, following guidelines around social distancing and minimal contact poses a new set of difficulties for EHS managers and supervisors. Not only do they have to ensure compliance with existing regulations, but they face new challenges when it comes to ensuring the health and safety of the workers in their charge.
