With pro dealers deemed “essential” by both the federal government and a number of states during the coronavirus crisis, it translates into most lumberyards continuing to deliver.

And most of those deliveries wind up with drivers at job sites.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has published guidance for construction employers, employees, contractors and companies conducting work on construction job sites in regard to coronavirus exposure prevention, preparedness and response.

The guidance describes how to prevent worker exposure to coronavirus, protective measures to be taken on the job site, personal protective equipment and work practice controls to be used, cleaning and disinfecting procedures, and what to do if a worker becomes sick.

The NAHB has specifically tailored the documents to construction job sites.

The materials include a customizable response plan, notifications for employees, a checklist and quick reference guide, and a toolbox talk for employers.

Sections of the document include:

  • Responsibilities of Managers and Supervisors
  • Responsibilities of Employees
  • Job Site Protective Measures
  • Job Site Cleaning and Disinfecting
  • Job Site Exposure Situations
  • OSHA Recordkeeping
  • “Essential” Industry Designations by States with Business Closure Orders

The full coronavirus guidance document is available here.
