Masks, distance, and hand-washing work. If you work in construction, learn the facts about COVID-19, what to do if you have symptoms appear or test positive, and what resources you can use to keep your family safe and secure.

Managers: Keep Teams Safe

If you’re an employer or manager, developing a clear plan to teach workers how to keep themselves and others safe will help save lives and livelihoods in our industry. Learn how to be an advocate for your team, manage risk, and use PPE to slow the spread of COVID-19 on the worksite.
