The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic might have many people — across many fields — working from home, but not everyone has that luxury. For individuals who work in concrete and construction, day-to-day operations are more or less business as usual. Teams are gearing up, making their way out to job sites and rolling up their sleeves for a hard day’s work. The main exception is, there’s a virus to consider.
With no current vaccine for the COVID-19 coronavirus, and no natural human immunity, coming in contact with this bug can lead to life-threatening repercussions. Job site safety is more important now than ever, and requirements extend far beyond the traditional need to wear a hard hat and follow protocol. Luckily, many agencies and organizations are stepping to make useful resources available.
Of course, there are countless other resources available to help keep teams informed and operating safely during this unprecedented pandemic. It is wonderful to see so many trusted organizations coming together to keep companies’ most valuable assets — their people — safe.
