COVID-19 has drastically changed the way that most of us live and work. However, one positive note to come from the Coronavirus pandemic is a collaboration amongst construction owners and stakeholders. Many companies are working together and sharing best practices to keep workers safe. They are also sharing webinars and conference calls on industry standards and solutions that will benefit the construction industry as a whole.
Construction Dive writes: Associations have also filled a crucial role in promoting the collective good of the industry during the pandemic. For instance, within days of the coronavirus appearing in the U.S., safety staff at the Associated General Contractors of Washington State had prepared a toolbox talk with guidelines about how to keep workers and job sites safe. After cases started appearing in New York state, the AGC chapter there quickly developed a three-part webinar series to help prepare its members for what was to come.
